IDEAL weather conditions on day one gave a fine start to Worthing Birdman 2015.

Tony Hughes travelled more than 100m to take the lead in the Condor class, with tough competition again lined up for day two.

Flying starts at 12.45pm on Worthing Pier today (August 16).

Here are some of yesterday’s competitors taking to the air, or taking the plunge.
