Classic Dart Paper Airplane

This paper airplane is designed for bored people in offices, lectures and classrooms the world over. 7 folds and throw, there isn't a difficult part in making this plane. I must dedicate it to Peter Batey who received my email for a few weeks and sent me this design.

Classic Dart Paper Airplane Flying

Oh come on we all know how to fly these! Well I'll just give a refresher course. You throw this plane overarm and on the level. It will fly quite far and very straight if you have made it correctly. It is very hard to make it so poorly that it crashes. It flies very well indoors and out.
