The paper used to make the planes was 3.1 meters long, 2.2 meters wide, and weighed 4 kilograms. It is hard to fold such a huge sheet of paper, so the kids had to practice to make sure they didn’t make any mistakes. With help from Mr. Toda Takuo, president of the Japan Paper Airplane Association, the group of friends started by making prototype planes one-third of the target size. About one month before the scheduled flight, they started making the world’s biggest paper planes.
