Red Bull Flugtag!!

The word “flugtag” is actually German for “flight day” or “airshow” – but the after seeing Red Bull’s spin on it, it seems more like “flight show”. Either way, Flugtag is back — The annual day of five different competitions around the country to see who has created the best man-powered flying machine.

This Saturday, September 21st, you can watch the ridiculousness as competitors launch their machines off a 30-foot pier into a body of water in Chicago, Miami, Washington D.C., Dallas/Ft.Worth, and Long Beach. Even if the sport isn’t particularly your cup of tea – the events are usually free to the public and you can’t NOT laugh when you see some of these teams, inevitably, crash and burn.

Check out this video of the top ten Red Bull Flugtag crashes and you’ll see what we mean:
