I’ve never searched for anything about making paper airplanes but yesterday I spent an hour with my daughter talking about and showing her how to make them... and now this video gets recommended to me... This is getting a little out of hand here

One of my 6th Grade English textbooks had a diagram of how to make stunt airplanes that could curve back to you, up, or down, or side-to-side...back in 1998.  Seriously, there was an entire page dedicated to that stunt paper airplane.

When I was young I used to do that complicated folding thing at the front of the plane and then attach a separate long thin strip of paper with horizontal stabilising wings at the back. For the life of me I can longer remember how I folded the complicated front part. These planes flew for ever.

This guy didn't invent the "distance" model, my dad taught me how to make it when I was 5 decades ago. We lived in eastern Europe then. The first two folds are slightly altered but the end result is identical. I'm not saying my dad invented it, I'm just saying this guy didn't.
