The Guinness Book has yet to verify the results – but it seems the world record for throwing a paper airplane has been broken by a full 6 metres and 20 centimetres.
Video published on YouTube by John Collins.
In this video, filmed in a US Air Force hangar near Sacramento, California, American football player Joe Ayoob throws a paper airplane over a record 68 metres, according to those present.
He had some significant help - the airplane was folded by John Collins, a paper airplane aficionado who has written manuals about the craft.
