A suggestion for improving the paper airplane

-Paper plane mprovement-

A suggestion from: Joe "Blue" Smith-Haddon - josmoked@hotmail.com

Take a look at the nose (Fig.1)- even with the most hard centre crease, after time, the plane will open out again. If you take one of the inside surfaces (Fig.2) of the nose folds, and make a rip/cut from the bottom, vertically up to the top, this gives you a flap (Fig.3) which can be tucked behind the opposite, inside folded surface of the nose (Fig.4). This holds the entire thing much closer and more rigidly together (Fig.5).

Thank you Blue for your valuable suggestion.
