This weekend saw the 2nd annual fest of flying and silliness that is the Red Bull Flugtag in Hyde Park... well, in the Serpentine, more like. Teams of amateur flying enthusiasts build ridiculously unaerodynamic contraptions and throw themselves off a platform into the Serpentine.

Check out the results here. Thanks to nickstone333 and cherbert for the great photos.
