Paper airplane distance record broken

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

How far can a paper airplane fly? The new record as of Sunday is 226 feet, 10 inches using a design by John Collins, thanks to help from college quarterback Joe Ayoob who threw for Collins. The launch was the key, and he threw it flat, like he was trying to get a football to the other end of the 747 hangar he was in. The airplane climbed by itself, giving it the altitude to go 19 feet past the old record distance.
