WOULD be aviators will be flinging themselves from Ilfracombe Pier this Sunday in a death defying test of determination against gravity in the annual South West Birdman competition.

The action packed day will run from 11am-8pm as costumed bird-brains vie with each other to see who will fly - or plummet - the furthest.

Alongside the flying frolics the event hosted by Ilfracombe Round Table to raise money for local and national good causes include a strongman competition plus an extensive programme of live music. Topping the bill on the Truck Stop Stage will be the one and only Wurzels.
