Flugtag enthusiasts attempt to cross Dubai Creek without a paddle
27 November, 2015
Daredevils and designers brought their madcap creations to Dubai Creek on Friday to take part in the Red Bull Flugtag flying competition. It is the second time Dubai has staged the event, in which teams of designers are challenged to build a flying machine that is launched from a ramp across water. It is nine years since the city last staged Flugtag but, going by the thousands who flocked to Creek Park to enjoy the display, the event has not lost any popularity in the interim. Teams and their flying machines gained points for design creativity, performance on stage and distance travelled.
