New WORLD RECORD flight at Red Bull Flugtag Germany 2012
Debriefing: top 5 aircraft on Red Bull Flugtag
August 13, 2017 was by far the most splendid day of this summer. In Moscow, on the Rowing Canal, the annual Red Bull Flugtag event was held, where the most courageous pilots tested homemade aircraft and tried with all their might to fight against the force of gravity. The winner was determined not only by the flight range, but also by the creativity of the aircraft design and the overall impression of the performance of the entire team.
In our selection we have collected the most prominent participants in the Red Bull Flugtag and their original flying structures that cut through the air (and water) over the weekend!
These creative guys from St. Petersburg piloted a huge popcorn box. During the alleged performance, the pilots and team members were dressed in costumes of an admission ticket, 3D glasses, a glass of soda and a director's crackers.
And even though the homemade popcorn was probably too big to fly far, the team from the Northern Capital definitely liked many viewers!
Squadron of Flying Hussars
Hussars are one of the symbols of youth, masculinity and unbridled courage, - said the team members representing Tver. In their opinion, this image is extremely close in spirit to the participants of the event.
After arranging a costume parade on the ramp and taking off on a huge bottle of champagne, the guys eventually became silver medalists.
And these participants from Moscow almost made history Flugtag, showing a negative flight range for the first time.
However, their homemade pterodactyl looked very impressive and, I'm sure, will be remembered by many viewers. Pilots' clothing was also a bold and original solution: the team members pushing the aircraft were dressed in dinosaur costumes.
Brave pilots from Nizhny Novgorod prepared in advance for the fact that after flight will have to swim well. Their flight structure was made in the form of a pirate ship, bearing the name of the team's hometown. Even the pirates did not forget about the sails and flags with emblems!
I just ask
Some other participants from Tver took off on ... a disgruntled grandmother! As the pilots said, they were inspired by five old ladies who, in the doctor's office, only wanted to ask at the same time.
Such an energetic and funny presentation, of course, could not be ignored by the audience of the event.
Red Bull Flugtag once again made the weekend of many Muscovites and guests of the capital spectacular and eventful. After so many ups and downs of teams, it became absolutely clear: the main thing here is not victory, but creativity, friendship and energy of the young and desperate.
