Red Bull Flugtag challenges the brave and brainy to design, build and pilot homemade flying machines off a 30-foot high flight deck in hopes of soaring into the wild blue yonder…or often, plunging into the waters below. Flugtag, which means“flying day” in German, pushes the envelope of human-powered flight, but competitors need more than airtime to reach the podium. Teams are judged on three criteria: flight distance, creativity of the craft, and showmanship. This criteria has inspired flying tacos, prehistoric pterodactyls, winnebagos with wings and even Snoopy and the gang to grace the Flugtag flight decks! And after a year with no Red Bull Flugtags in the US, 2010 promises to be bigger and better than ever.
The crowd has spoken! This summer wouldn’t be complete without a Red Bull Flugtag event on the West Coast, so on August 21st, Red Bull Flugtag will splash land in Southern California. Our last flight through LA was 2003. This year, Long Beach’s Rainbow Harbor takes center stage. Flying machines will swarm the skies above these coastal waters in hopes of achieving human-powered flight, and with such close proximity to stars of Hollywood, we’re sure to see some memorable performances.
Gates open: 11:00AM, First Flight: 1:00PM, Last Flight: 3:30PM
I VERY HIGHLY recommend you reach downtown Long Beach before 9:00AM to make sure you have a place to sit or stand! I also recommend that even though there will be concession stands, that you bring some snacks, sandwiches, and bottled drinks that don’t require a cooler.
