Dozens of teams prepare their home-made flying machines for Flugtag in Dubai
18 September, 2015
Forty-seven teams have been cleared for take-off for the forthcoming Red Bull Flugtag event in Dubai. The home-made flying machine competition takes place at Dubai Creek Park on 27 November after a nine-year hiatus. Participants will aim to break the world Flugtag record, which was set by the Chicken Whisperers in 2013, who managed to propel their flying machine 78.64 metres at an event in Long Beach, California. Teams are also judged on the creativity of the craft and their showmanship on the day. At the 2007 event in Dubai, 36 teams competed in front of 30,000 spectators.
