Making Paper Airplanes That Really FlyBook - 2004
These 20 origami planes look great and take to the air just like a bird in flight. You'll want to construct every one, from a simple glider to the more complicated rocket. Just follow the fun photographs and the information on choosing the right paper, folding, and holding the plane for best flying results. The Hawk's a classic, with an elegant nose section that resembles a beak. For something more unusual, craft the Hoop, one of the rare circular designs that actually soars. Sleek stylish, and ultramodern, the Needle Dart uses the traditional origami "squash" technique. As your folding skills improve, try the stunning Art Deco Wing, the imaginative Twin (made with multiple sheets of paper), and the unique little Spinner.
