Origami Sonic Jet Airplane

The appearance of the model meets all the characteristic features of supersonic jet fighters: swept-back shapes, sharp corners, narrow elongated wings, and a rectilinear body. The nose has triangular details similar to a cockpit. Assembly includes many steps. It is enough to follow the instructions without skipping or making additional folds, which may adversely affect flight performance.

The airplane flies far, more than 13 meters, and is suitable for launching outdoors. Light gusts of wind are not a hindrance for the dense body. Adhesive tape or glue will help to further strengthen the fuselage. It is necessary to glue the parts of the body along the upper fold lines. Adding a curve to the rear wings will increase flight time.

Step 1

Prepare assisting lines by alternately folding the sheet of paper in half along the long and short sides and opening it back.

Step 2
Step 3
Step 4
Step 5

Form a triangle at the top of the paper, connecting the sides in the center.

Step 6
Step 7

Connect the sides of the triangle in the middle, making it sharper.

Step 8
Step 9

Turn the figure over with the smooth side facing up, and bend the top to the bottom middle line.

Step 10
Step 11

Turn the shape back over and make folds, aligning the halves of the top edge on the central vertical line.

Step 12
Step 13
Step 14

Turn the figure over once more and bend the sharp corner upward to the maximum possible height.

Step 15

Bend the sides connected along the vertical middle line to the edges and compare with the illustration.

Step 16
Step 17

Close the figure along the vertical middle line, folding the airplane’s body, and turn the fold upward.

Step 18
Step 19

Bend the wings, bending the plane upward, to the base of the inner small triangle.

Step 20

Turn the shape over and repeat the fold on the wing on the other side.

Step 21
Step 22

Spread the wings to the sides.

Step 23
Step 24

Fasten the body and triangles resembling the cockpit with glue or tape.

Step 25

Interesting information: a supersonic aircraft flies faster than sound – that’s more than 330 meters per second. That is, a supersonic aircraft covers more than 1200 km in just one hour. The hum of the engines, after exceeding the speed of sound, remains behind the body of the air machine. Knowing such information, you can show off your erudition in front of your buddies.
