Step 1: Materials

1 Piece of 8.5 by 11 inch Paper


Step 2: Length and Corner Folding

Fold your paper in half along its length. Then pull the corners into the center.

Step 3: Nose and Security Folding

Fold the top all but 1 inch down. Then pull both corners into the center. Once both corners have been pulled into the center crease, fold the small triangle up to secure them down, thus making the security fold.  

Step 4: Fold the Wings

Make your Strike Spectre's wings down by folding them down just above the security fold. While doing this make sure the wings are parallel to the bottom of the fuselage.

Step 5: Fold the Winglets

To make your aircraft's winglets, fold the wingtips up from 3/4 of an inch in. Repeat on the other side. Once they are both formed, fold them so they stand up at 90 degree angles.

Step 6: Taping

Taping this airplane is very simple. Tape it at the front and back of its fuselage.

Step 7: Flight

The Strike Spectre is a very simple airplane both in construction and in flight. Give your airplane a good medium throw and watch it fly far away at a fast pace. Enjoy!

    I call that a harier (from a dangerous book for boys) it does not have winglets and won a distance record in britan. The book is also British, and is probably quite old.
