The Guinness World Record flight for longest indoor
distance flown by a paper airplane has been broken. On Feb. 26 2012, former college football quarterback Joe Ayoob threw a paper airplane that soared almost the entire length of a hangar at McLellan Air Force Base near Sacramento, Calif. The fold piece of paper covered a distance of 226 feet, 10 inches, or three-fourths of the length of a football field.
The paper airplane flight beat the previous world record of 207 feet, 4 inches, set by Stephen Kreiger in 2003.The record-setting plane was folded by John Collins, the self-proclaimed “Paper Airplane Guy.” Collins has been designing paper planes since childhood and has studied origami, the Japanese art of paper folding. He shares his knowledge and appreciation for paper airplanes through demonstrations at craft fairs, as well as his website and YouTube channel.
