VIDEO: Gadget Show star flies at Worthing Birdman

STUDENTS at University of Southampton created two craft flown by Gadget Show star Jason Bradbury at Worthing Birdman.

Jason's co-presenter on the channel Five show Ortis Deley joined him on the platform at the end of Worthing Pier, to help launch the wide wings.

A combined distance of 64.77 metres from the two flights meant Jason took third place in the Leonardo Da Vinci class for inventors and self-builds.
