Sa­muel John­son, with his para­chute named ‘Titty Titty Bang Bang’, tak­ing the plunge dur­ing the Bird­man char­ity rally in Mel­bourne yes­ter­day. Con­tes­tants jump off a 4m plat­form above a river, stay­ing in the air for as long as pos­si­ble be­fore crash­ing into the wa­ter. Teth­ered to his para­chute made out of bras, John­son glided his way to the top of the quirky Aus­tralian com­pe­ti­tion, beat­ing con­tes­tants dressed as a bal­loon horse and winged rep­tile.
