8 1/2- by 11-inch sheet of paper about 2 inches toward the center, lengthwise, so they meet.
Make a 3/4-inch fold on the bottom edge.
Repeat step 2, folding up the bottom 7 more times.
Flip the plane over so that the folds are facedown, then fold the whole plane in half.
Keeping the plane folded, fold down the top wing about 3/4 inch from the center fold.
Flip the plane over so your beginning folds are faceup and repeat step 5 with the other wing.
Flip the plane over again so that the folds are facedown, then fold up the edge of each wing tip about 1/2 inch.
To launch your plane, throw it overhand and straight up in the air. Have a great flight!
