Red Bull Flugtag!

WHAT IS FLUGTAG?

Flugtag, which means "flying day" in German, is a contest that dares the brave and the brainy to design, build and pilot their homemade flying machines off a 22-foot high ramp and soar high above the city's bay, ocean or river -- or, as is more often the case, plunge into the waters below.

Since the first Red Bull Flugtag took place in Vienna, Austria, in 1991, more than 40 Flugtags have been held around the globe, attracting up to 300,000 spectators for a single event. The record for the farthest flight-to-date currently stands at 195 feet and was set at Red Bull Flugtag Austria in 2000. A new U.S. record was set just last year at Red Bull Flugtag Nashville with a flight of 155 feet!
