Step 1:

First, you have to fold the paper in half and make a crease, then just open it back.

Step 2:

Second, you have to fold the top part of the paper into two triangles from the corners (use the previous step to help you fold it). Then, you fold both of the triangles forward until the corner touches the edge of the paper.

Step 3:

Now, you fold another two triangles (again).

Step 4:

Now, you have a little triangle at the end. Fold it forward to lock the two wings.

Step 5:

Now you fold it in half again.

Step 6:

Finally, you fold the wings by folding the two pieces in half.

Step 7:

Now you have your classic plane right there in your hands after you open the two wings half way. Now it can take off in 5... 4... 3... 2... 1... Enjoy!
