How To Make A Paper Airplane Fly Forever (VIDEO)

If you're in the mood to learn a little about the impact of thermals on aviation, or simply want an amazing conversation at almost any dinner party, then you're in luck. Because with this quick tutorial below, you're about to learn how to make a paper airplane that can fly in circles -- wait for it -- FOREVER!

Okay, so maybe not forever, but for a seriously long time (or until your gas bill becomes a bit too costly to support this venture of infinite paper aviation). Watch and learn how to make one yourself in this video below.

The mesmerizing video lesson was posted online by ViralVideoLab. They throw out the following background info and helpful tip:

The paper airplane must be centered while it performs it turns, in the middle of the four heating plates. So it took me about 87 takes to produce this video. If the paper airplane isn't exactly in the center of the plates, it will drop off. So feel free to build your own paper plane, and let it fly as long as you want in your kitchen. Good luck.

So follow the video instructions very carefully, be sure to center the paper airplane over the heating plates and let the infinite flight fun begin!
