You don't need a boarding pass to be a paper plane throwing world champion.
It looks like javelin throwing but the object thrown is much smaller.
This object is a sheet of A4 paper.
The very unusual paper plane throwing world championship took place from May 12 to 14, 2022 in Hangar-7 at Salzburg airport in Austria, which houses an Aeronautics museum.
On the program, three different events: that of the longest distance, that of the longest flight time and aerobatics.
The first event was won by Serbian Lazar Krstic with a masterful throw of just over 61.11 meters.
Pakistani Rana Muhammad Usman Saeed, meanwhile, took the podium for the longest flight time with his plane remaining in the air for 14.86 seconds.
In the aerobatic category, South Korean Seunghoon Lee received the highest score of 46 points for his performance.

But before each event, you have to go through a crucial stage: folding.
On the sidelines of the competition, the participants, concentrated, make drawings, fold and unfold their sheet with the aim of making it the most aerodynamic.
And without glue, of course.
