The Nakamura Lock is a classic airplane that flies great. If you are learning how to fold only one paper airplane, this is it.
Step 1: Start with a regular piece of rectangle paper that’s 8.5 x 11.0 inches (215.9 x 279.4 mm).
Step 2: Fold the paper in half.
Step 3: Unfold.
Step 4: Fold both top corners down to the center, creating a pointy peak.
Step 5: Fold the top part down.
Step 6: Fold both top corners down to the center without making a pointy peak. A little bit of the top must be flat.
Step 7: Fold the center flap up.
Step 8: Turn the paper over.
Step 9: Fold the right half over to the left.
Step 10: Fold the a part of the wing over to the right like you see in the picture.
Step 11: Turn the paper over.
Step 12: Now fold this wing to match the other wing.
Step 13: Unfold both wings and you’re all done. Now you need to learn how to fly it! Ready for takeoff?
Step 14: Make sure the wings are tilted upwards a little like this.
Step 15: Gently hold the center of the plane where the lock is. Then with the plane aiming straight ahead, not tilted up or down, gently throw the plane forward. It should now sail smoothly in the air towards its direction.
