The annual charity Birdman Rally is held at Melbourne's Yarra River, and involves participants flying homemade gliders in front of thousands of spectators.
Contestants jump off a four-metre (13-foot) platform above the river, staying in the air for as long as possible before crashing into the water.
This year's contest attracted 15 competitors, including a man dressed as the Bride of Frankenstein, a woman flying a horse made from balloons and another wearing a pterodactyl costume.
