Introduction: The Afterburner Paper Plane

You can buy a book that can give you templates which makes it easier to build for you and have instructions that are clearer than mine. If you want to buy this book, go to this website: 101 Paper Planes. An afterburner is a component of some jet engines, placed after the main engine. Extra fuel is injected into the afterburner and burned for increased thrust. In this paper airplane, a spoiler is placed near the end to increase lift. Adding the spoiler to the stabilizers also make s it more stable.

Step 1: Getting Started.

Begin by getting a piece of normal rectangle paper, or in my case using the Afterburner template. Fold the left side over and even with the right side. Then unfold.

Step 2: The First Few Steps.

Fold the top edge down to the bottom edge. Then unfold

Step 3: The Fuselage and the Stablizers

Fold the bottom edge up to the center crease and then unfold. Fold the bottom edge up to the crease just created and unfold.

Step 4: The Nose

Fold the top left corner down to the vertical center crease. Do the same with the right side. Then fold the top left angled side over to the vertical center crease as picture number 2. Do the same on the right.

Step 5: The Last Few Steps

Now squash fold the lowest crease up to the on above it. Fold the left side over and even with the right side.

Step 6: Finishing Touches

Fold the top wing over to the left leaving 1.4 cm for the fuselage. Fold the left side over 1.4 cm. Flip, from left to right. Fold the left side over so that the left side on top matches the fold below. Fold the right side over 1.4 cm.

Step 7: Tips

The Afterburner's additional reinforcement in the back provides it with extra lift accuracy. Use it wisely.
