A high school student in Japan just clocked "paper planes" with the best throw of all time.

The simply-crafted jet actually boomerangs back to the student after being airborne for an incredible 24 seconds.

Ikuya Hara posted the video of the masterful throw to Twitter. When the plane returns, a look comes over his face denoting a happiness we can only dream of experiencing.

The plane dips a few times during its flight but, fortuitously, catches an updraft and returns to Ikuya's hands.

A second attempt sees the plane nosedive to the ground, so presumably the winds favoured the first throw.

Thank you, Ikura Hara-san.
