New paper airplane record

Thursday, March 01, 2012


Last Sunday, February 26th, Joe Ayoob threw a paper airplane designed by John Collins a distance of 226 feet, 10 inches, which is a new World's record for paper airplane tossing. ESPN has an article with all the details. Above is the winning throw, which can be seen at the ESPN link if they take it down from YouTube

Ok ... I admit that I'm a fool for paper planes.

This is a damn good effort and result.

But saying that the glider was "designed" .....??

Give me an effing break ....
By folding the number of planes that I've made in my life .... you might as well call me and aerodynamicist!
You fold ... you try it .... you fold another .... you try it .... you fold another .... and so on.

OMMAG,

Look at the bright side -- be thankful the folder wasn't a rocket scientist.
