What you probably might think as child’s play, but there’s a surprising amount of history behind paper airplanes.

How to fold the world’s longest flying paper plane.

Even today, with the benefit of modern aerodynamics, physics, and materials, the creation of a good paper airplane is still as much art as it is science. Grab a stack of 8.5″ x 11″ paper, find a clean, flat surface, and get ready to fold. Here are five of our favorite flying wonders.

The Author of this plane (he floated in Guinness record 27 seconds) is Ken Blackburn. in his book he states that he did not invent the plane. He tried several classic designs and choose this one.
