Remember the good old days when you used to fold paper to make airplanes? Back in the day, that was one of the coolest things to do. You can busy yourself all afternoon figuring out different ways to fold paper and then making your creations fly. Of course, there was the added bonus of being able to write notes on the paper for your friends.
I haven’t folded paper in ages and haven’t even really thought about paper airplanes. Then I discovered this site called Paper Airplanes HQ via Reddit. ((Paper Airplanes HQ)) I don’t know if the term “paper airplane geek” even exists, but since everyone is a “something geek” these days, why not? In any case, this site is a veritable treasure trove of paper airplane designs – all of which actually fly. You just need to know how to make the proper folds and how to throw them in the air the right way.
Check out some of these designs that I know I would never have thought possible.
Jet and Bomber Airplanes
SSTs and Stealth Airplanes
And saving the best for last – starships of the likes that you can see in your favorite sci-fi show.
Needless to say, many of these designs require a high degree of accuracy when folding. They are a tad more complex than the usual paper airplanes that we used to make as kids, but the next time your electric power goes out and you find yourself having nothing to do, grab a stack of paper and start folding! All designs come with specific instructions for folding.
