A few weeks ago we had the judges onboard for the Red Bull Flugtag event in Farm Cove near the Sydney Opera House. Those crazzy people with their flying machines were at it again! It was a nice sunny day and there was a good turnup with the crowds and boats.
One of the teams made quite a long flight (it was pretty much a standard flying kite though, no exotic design). Most just fell straight down off the ramp to see their flying machine broken into bits and pieces. The judges gave scores to each team for design, asthetics etc.
After the crew are rescued by Surf Rescue, what happens to these flying machines?
Although few teams have demonstrated their mastery of flight, it was a fun day out on the water.
