A long range, stealthy, uniquely-shaped little aircraft the Ghost
is an interesting little paper airplane.This design is developed from the "Stealth
TAA USAF Designation: A14-1
Step 1: Materials
1 Piece of 8.5 by 11 inch Paper
Step 2: Length And Corner Folding
Begin by folding your paper in half along its length. Then pull the corner into the center. Repeat on the other side.
Step 3: Nose Pull Down And Corner Folding
Pull the nose down along the bottom of the corner folds. Flip the paper over. Then pull the corners in again.
Step 4: Preparing Your Ghost's Trailing Edge
Fold your Ghost up in half along its center. Once you've done this, get your ruler and a pencil. Take the ruler and align its mark for 1.5 inches and place that over the trailing edge. Then use the pencil to mark the "0 inches" spot. Next, align your ruler flush up against the wings' trailing edge. With the 3.5 inch mark over the center fold of the paper, mark the 1.5, 2.5 and 3.5 inch indications with a pencil mark.
Note: On this step it is essential that you use the ruler backwards, going from the center of the paper (indicated on the ruler as 3.5 inches), to the outer part of the wing, (indicated as 0 inches). If you don't follow the ruler this way, your airplane will not be shaped correctly.
Step 5: Cutting Your Ghost's Trailing Edge
Begin to form the "stealthy" shape of your Ghost by cutting from the 1.5 inch mark on the wingtip to the 3.5 inch mark on the trailing edge. Throw the scraps of the wing away. From the 3.5 inch mark, cut to the mark 1 inch into the wing above the 2.5 inch mark. From that point, cut to the dot at 1.5 inches on the trailing edge. Then throw the scrap paper away.
