Flying craft competition makes a beautiful glider - video

At a recent competition of people jumping off a platform to see how far they could fly, this entry was superb. Normally these creations drop like stones, yet there was some real thought and design put into getting this one aloft.

Flugtag is an event that tests out the skyworthiness of home-built flying contraptions. For the most part, there's more of an emphasis on art and comedy than on effective engineering. Teams design their flying machines (and costumed skits) around a theme, they perform for the audience, and then push their craft off an elevated runway and (usually) directly into a major body of water below.
