Introduction: How to Make the Fastest Paper Airplane

About: Age: 15 Name: Tanner Grade: 10'th (sophomore) Now, you must realize that i created this account several years ago and I did not have the same hobbies, tastes and general knowledge that I have now. But even th…

This is how to make the fastest paper airplane I've ever seen. I call it the Eagle.

Step 1: Fold in Half

This is an easy step. Just fold an 8.5 x 11" sheet of paper in half down the center like pictured, and then open it up again so that it lays flat.

Step 2: Fold the Cockpit

Fold the cockpit of your paper airplane so that the flap corners meet at the center line.

Step 3: Fold the Cockpit Down

Fold the cockpit down so that the point lines up with the center fold line.

Step 4: Fold the 2nd Cockpit

Fold your second cockpit by folding your tow flaps down like the 2nd step.

Step 5: Make the First Folds of the Wings

Fold another two flaps down to the center of the plane.

Starting to look like a real paper airplane now!

Step 6: The Second Folds of the Wings

Flip the airplane over and fold each side in to line up with the center fold of the plane.

Step 7: Ready for Takeoff!

Flip the plane over one last time and open up the folds so that you have the 'body' of the plane to hold on to (like pictured).

You are now ready for a test flight.

To fly well, fly inside and throw as hard as you can.

DISCLAIMER: DO NOT THROW AT AN ANIMAL OR HUMAN BEING.

Step 8: Bonus Step

If you want your paper airplane to go even further, put a paperclip on the forward body of the plane. The weight will help it fly farther.

not really because it says to just chuck it as hard as you can so I mean if you can fold it you should be fine and you saw the cover photo is was all smashed
