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

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
