Red Bull Flugtag Singapore 2012

Singapore held its first Red Bull Flugtag event last Sunday on sunny island Sentosa. This is the first time Red Bull Flugtag is held in South East Asia. A total of 38 teams attempted to push the boundaries of human aviation (and luck). While none of them come close to the world record distance of 69.79m set in Mainz, Germany earlier this year, the 38 team of 4 managed to entertain the 35,000 strong crowd with great showmanship and creative “flying” craft.

And since the Flugtag is held in Singapore, there are quite a number of local inspired craft. We have MRT Cabin, ERP Gantry, Chilli Crabs, Durians, Kueh Lapis and Char Siew Pows. I notice that there are 2 types of contestants: Those who are built their craft to be some what aerodynamics so that they can try to break the record and those who just want to have fun with wacky craft. Whatever it is, they are all entertaining to watch.

Check out some of the flying and crashes.
