In Flight

This month, the East Coast v. West Coast feud lands in Florida.

Or should we say flies in Florida.

The First National Red Bull Flugtag 2013 happens on September 21 at Biscayne Park, where west coast and east coast South Floridians battle one another to see whose wacky flying machines catch the most air. 

Imagine homemade flying contraptions right out of a Leonardo Da Vinci sketch. If Da Vinci had been stabbed with adrenaline needles.

Witness aviation history as South Beachers compete against Hollywood flyers with crazy aviation mechanisms that ricochet from a 30-foot drop into the wavy waters of the bay.

Our favorite: the hang glider shaped like an ice cream truck, because that'd make for the best recess break ever.

That might've been the Wright Brothers' first prototype, if they had access to some Red Bull vodkas.
