What would you call these flying contraptions? Out-of-the-ordinary? Outrageous? Dumb and dumber?

Fearless men and women around the world have launched themselves off a series of terrifyingly high platforms in self-constructed flying machines that range from the sensible to the what-on-earth-were-you-thinking? 

Welcome to the Red Bull Flugtag 2013 that was organized in cities, including Istanbul, Moscow, Kiev, Belgrade, Stockholm and Ottawa between May to July. And in case you don't know, 'flugtag' is German for "flight day" even if the homemade aircraft will end up in the water!

It’s simple to win! They merely had to fly further than the contraptions of other contestants!
