It looks a little something like... THIS:

The event has been happening twice a year in different cities across the globe since 1991, with teams applying months in advance to receive the honor of getting to potentially break a rib.

Teams are judged based on the uniqueness of their design, the creativity and showmanship of their pre-flight skit, and how far the craft itself flies, which uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuusually isn't very far.
