John Collins currently holds a Guinness World Record for the longest flight ever by a paper airplane. Back in 2012, he teamed up with former arena football quarterback Joe Ayoob to break the previous record of 207 feet, 4 inches with a meticulously-built glider. Ayoob launched the plane and it landed at 226 feet, 10 inches.
