The purpose of this instructable is to teach you how to make the paper airplane pictured above unofficially named the "Howitzer". Paper airplanes are a fun, cheap and easy way to kill some time or entertain children. Its easy to make a game out of it and see who can make a plane that flies the farthest or stays up in the air the longest. Building the plane should take about 5 minutes. With a little practice you will be able to make this very unique looking plane and have it glide nicely.
