HIROSHIMA (Kyodo) A Hiroshima Prefecture man got a paper airplane to fly for 27.9 seconds last month, a flight time Guinness World Records has recognized as the longest ever.

Takuo Toda, 52, said he achieved the record on April 11 in a competition in Fukuyama, Hiroshima Prefecture, shaving 0.3 second off the previous record set 11 years ago in the United States.

Toda, from Fukuyama, heads a national association of paper airplane fans.
