This is a non-flying paper airplane with four wings. This simple, but elegant airplane is easy to make and cool to show off. If thrown, it might do backflips, suicide bombing, or simply fail. This is also cooler than the traditional paper airplane.

Step 1: The Material

All you need is a piece of paper, usually a piece of notebook paper.

Step 2: Folding the Hamburger... Twice

Take your paper and fold it hamburger style once then fold it hamburger again.

Step 3: Finishing the Base

To finish the base, do a squash fold on both sides. Before squash folding, make sure the shorter side is facing you. You should have four flaps shaped in a right triangle.

Step 4: Making the Wings Look Neat

Remember when I said there were four flaps after you finished the previous step? Well those are the wings and to make them look cool, grab the right flap on one side and fold it on top of the left flap. Repeat on the other side.

Step 5: Creating Wings, Finishing Plane

To finish, fold the base in half simply fold the flaps into wings like how you fold airplane wings. Have fun with your new model four-winged airplane!
