You can use scissors or other hard edges to smooth all folds.
Fold the upper left corner down so that the left edge lines up with the bottom edge.
Flip the paper over and repeat step two with the upper right corner.
Now fold the top right diagonal edge down so that it lines up with the bottom edge of the airplane.
Flip the paper over and repeat step four with the top left diagonal edge.
