Origami Paper Airplane III

Origami Paper Airplane III main image

This is a really easy to make paper airplane that you will love flying again and again. The blunt nose makes it really easy to reuse as it does not easily get damaged. It is another classic design that has been around for many years and I really like it.

Origami Paper Airplane III Flying

This paper airplane can be thrown overarm quite hard with the nose pointing slightly upwards or can be thrown in a sweep from underarm as hard as you can directly upwards. It should then sort itself out and fly down to earth very well. This plane is great indoors or out.
