Picture Tutorial: How to Make a Paper Airplane that Glides for 10 Seconds

Here is my design of a paper airplane.  There is a video in my videos that shows how to make the plane, and here is the picture tutorial to show how it is made.  You can choose which to pick.  Thanks for reading this blog, and always, please comment for any further suggestions.

Link to video tutorial (not needed, this guide is very easy):

Step 1:  Get 8 1/2" x 11" paper (printer paper size)

 Step 2: Fold the paper in half, long ways, and crease.  Then open it for step 3.

Step 3:  Like most paper planes, fold in the top left and right corners until they meet each other and their adjacent sides are parallel.

Step 4:  Flip the paper over and do the same thing again on each side.  This time, the 2 adjacent sides will be very long and parallel to each other.  Look at the picture for reference.

Step 5: Fold down the top point so that it touches the only spot where the two sides pull apart from each other.  This is easier to see if you look at the pictures.

Step 6:  Fold it over evenly so all those creases and folds are on the inside.  Once folded over, fold the flap down to touch the bottom of the plane.  Do this on the other side too.  Just like basic paper plane making (Only this one is 10x better).

Step 7:  Now just open up the two folded down wings or flaps and throw it far.  Comment and tell how it flies!  Thanks for reading.
