Dozens of people tried their skills at human-powered flights as they took part in in the annual Red Bull Flugtag.

Thirty-one teams launched their homemade and unique aircraft off a 30-foot flight deck.

The goal was to see which team could fly the farthest.

None of the aircraft were up in the air for very long before crashing into the chilly waters of Lake Michigan.
