A group of Boeing engineers has broken the Guinness World Record for the flight of a paper plane.

Dillon Ruble and Garrett Jensen, from Boeing, teamed up with aerospace engineer Nathan Erickson, and spent four months experimenting with paper plane designs.

They then took on the Guinness World Record for the farthest flight by a paper aircraft. Their craft traveled a distance of 88m.

The final design was put to the test in Crown Point, Ind., where Ruble managed to break the world record on the third try.

The flight of 88m broke the record of 76m, which was set by Chee Yie Jian, Shin Moo Joon and Kim Kyu Tae in April 2022.
