this plane is ultimately my favorite paper airplane. its cool, fast, and far flying.Try throwing it off a jungle gym at your nearest park. Just bear in mind that you might not see it again. also this plane is perfect to fit in any pocket comfortably!

Step 1: Collect your paper

Picture of collect your paper
on this plane you can use any paper that is 8 1/2 x 11 inches, i like that thin decorative paper its cool and pretty. but your ordinary printer paper will work fine. all you need is a piece of paper, No tape, No scissors, No paper clips, just paper!

Step 2: Start folding!

you are going to need to do the most precise folds for the best plane. first off you are going to fold the paper into a triangle and do the same on the other side.

Step 3: Folding

after fold the two sides so the corners are touching each other, then unfold them.

Step 6: Folding

step 6 is confusing
Not really...You fold the sides so they touch the thing that's sticking up.
fold this step on THE SAME FOLD AS STEP 5... the triangle one
this is the same fold as the previous one just again
