Moscow's Flugtag Attracts Record Crowds of Citizens

More than 100,000 people has come to see funny flying machines, its creative pilots and breathtaking fallings at the he Red Bull Flugtag event at Moscow River's Strogino floodplain.

      It is quite hard to call Flugtag ("flight day" in German) a sport, but it is a real competiton, which generates a lot of fun with participants presenting their home-made flying machines and putting them through their paces.

      Performances were judged by the following criteria: distance of the flight, creativity and showmanship. While it is worth mentioning that the last two aspects usually dominate the first. There is no limits to one's imagination, so every participant was able to show his own vision of the perfect flying machine.

      The "Rostov-Lobster" team from Rostov-on-Don took the first place with their "Flying Lobster" machine. The furtherst distance "flown" was achieved by the "Illusion of Flying" team from Ulyanovsk. Their self-made airplane’s flight managed a full 19 meters, though they took only the third place. The world record is 63 meters. 

      Red Bull Flugtag is held in Russian capital for the second time, and has already become a very attractive event for Muscovites. The first Red Bull Flugtag competition took place in 1991 in Vienna. Now it is held in over 35 cities all over the world.
