Perfect Paper Airplane

I'm supposed to be on the way to Canada so I thought it appropriate to teach you how to make the perfect paper airplane, as taught to me by my brother, The Politician, who is a master at many things.

I share ancient family secret with you now...

Start with 8 1/2 x 11 paper (regular printer/bond paper)
Fold in half, lengthwise
Open. Fold Right corner to center fold.
Repeat for left side
It is important to crease firmly and be exact with your folds
Fold new right corner to center fold
Repeat for left side
Close on center fold (like a book)
Be sure to crease and make folds exact
Fold backward so angled edge perfectly lines up with straight edge
Extremely important to crease hard and fold exact here
Repeat for other side

Put a penny about 1/2 inch inside the front tip and secure it with some tape. The plane will fly like you never believed it could.
