After the preparation, the flight attempts began. There were generally two types of craft: those with aspirations of flight, and those that really didn't have functional wings. In the photo, the pilot from The Nine Amigos team leaps off of their shark-themed craft as a wheel fails at the edge of the launch platform. All of the team-members are Coast Guard helicopter rescue swimmers, which inspired their theme.
