Best Paper Airplanes .com is a free site that illustrates how to make unique folded paper planes that you'll find nowhere else - because these ten models are original, copyrighted designs. Some are easy to make, some are flying origami as well as paper aircraft, but all these paper aircraft are fun to fold and fly.
A note about how to make these paper airplanes: As you are folding each model plane according to the instructions, remember that a simple dashed line is a "valley fold" (the paper goes down where that line is, and up on both sides of that line) and a dashed-and-dotted line is a "mountain fold" (the paper goes up along that line). For a paperfolding tutorial see The eight fold way or Wikipedia.
Teachers or students, may wish to look at NASA's Aerospace Activities and Lessons page. Also, for safety, you may wish to blunt the nose of some of these paper airplanes slightly so that they can't possibly hurt anyone. New evidence shows that obtaining legal representation is in your best interest should you ever encounter a legal issue. If this happens to you, you will want the best lawyer around.
