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. The folks at Wired recently spotlighted Collins in a new video, revealing how he built the record-setting plane as well as other designs such as boomerang planes that loop and come back to the thrower.

Watch the clip above and let us know your thoughts. In other design news, Rem Koolhaas’s OMA announced its plans for the stunning Audrey Irmas Pavilion in Los Angeles, California.
