    The Large Hadron Collider forward experiment was motivated to test the hadronic interaction models used to describe the cosmic-ray induced air showers. In this paper, results of the LHCf for forward particle spectra measured in the LHC 0.9 and 7TeV p-p collisions and 5TeV p-Pb collisions are presented together with the future plan of the experiment.
