#HowTo Fold Five Paper Airplanes with John Collins: Two Boomerang Planes, The Bat Plane, Tumbling Wing, and the World Record Paper Airplane | #NationalPaperAirplaneDay
If you’ve ever been to a flagship Maker Faire you might have seen John Collins roaming around holding up his signature ‘the Paper Airplane Guy‘ sign – while in front of him floats, or moves, or perhaps tumbles is the appropriate verb, a paper airplane of an incredibly simple design, The Tumbling Wing. Seemingly simple because it is – and in the video below John walks you through how to build it, along with 4 other paper airplanes including the World Record design.
