      Oh... Cool. Yeah, we have them, just call 'em something else.

      Flugtag sounds German. "Flyday" more or less. Appropriate eh?

      How far did your brothers masterpiece travel for the win?

      Team Yakima won with a distance of 62 feet, and I guess from what my bro said they also got best performance.

      Years before Red Bull got involved with this, there was footage from one on Blue Peter (Brit general interest/news/hobbies kids show thats been going for decades). The winning team's contraption was basically just a hang-glider, which i thought was cheating surely... but i suppose if they built it themselves it'd count. Then you get the endless "joke" teams that are never going to win anyway, like a drag queen in a pram flapping some 'fans' out each side which drops like a stone (then again going on the brain power of the average drag queen they probably did expect such a method to result in flight)
