Red Bull gives you WIIIIIIIINGS!!

Red Bull organised its first Flugtag in the UAE on the 25th of Novermber, 2005. “Flugtag” means "flying day" in German language. The event allows spectators to join in the fun while watching fearless amateur pilots attempt to fly human-powered machines!

36 teams are selected to take off at the 1st Red Bull Flugtag in the UAE. Most of the participants spent about three and a half months building their flying machines for the flying day contest.

The event took place at the scenic Dubai Creek Park. The event that made the tour, since 1992 of more than 20 countries around the world, was held under the patronage of HH Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammad Bin Rashed Al Maktoum.

Some images below...

  • The event was really cool except for the Lebanese commentator and the heavy handed security guards. Hope they sort that out for next year, then it will one of the best events in the Middle east!
