Flugtag - Bayfront Park Miami
Pictures, a video clip & visitor information from the 2010 Red Bull Flugtag event held at Bayfront Park in Miami, FL.
I've been seeing the Red Bull Flugtag commercials on TV and have
been wanting to experience this unique event in person.
I finally made that happen this summer when the Red Bull Flugtag homemade flying device competition made a tour stop at Bayfront Park in downtown Miami on July 10th, 2010.
The first flight was scheduled for 12 noon with the last flight taking place at around 2 PM. We had to park about five blocks away from Bayfront Park since we didn't arrive until just before noon.
There were already about 85,000+ people packed into the park and the Bayside Mall next door.
Luckily, we were able to find a decent spot with a good view of the Red Bull Jumbotron TV screen and a partial view of the actual runway.
|There were 35 teams competing for the favor of the celebrity judges including Y100 DJ Ninalicia Osorio, Red Bull Air Force Skyaker Miles Daisher, model Patricia De Leon, Red Bull pilots Kirby Chambliss and Chuck Aaron, and artist David Batard.|
|Most of the teams
originated from various areas of Florida with a few coming from other parts
of the Southeastern USA.
They had humorous names such as Mullet Slappers, Team Space Bat, The Burger Mobile, The Flying Manatee, Rubber Ducky, Shell Shocked, and Team Space Bat.
|I captured some
video clips of the Red Bull Flugtag teams launching from the runway and edited them
together into a short movie.
