What’s the farthest you’ve ever thrown a paper airplane? 15 feet? 30 feet? Most people feel pretty good about themselves if they can get their paper airplane to make it to the other side of the living room, but paper airplane expert John Collins has created a world record breaking design that eats “most people’s” paper airplanes for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
In an amazing video that went viral yesterday and has racked up over 1.1 million views so far we see thrower Jay Ayoob throw a John Collins design for the win! He sets a new world record with a throw of 226 feet, 10 inches. You gotta see it to believe it.
John Collins has been keeping a video account of his attempt to break the world record for distance at youtube.com/ThePaperAirplaneGuy. He’s also written two books for those looking to create some record breaking paper airplanes of their own.
