Flugtag: n. German for “Flying Day”.
On Saturday afternoon, Carla & Tomer and the three of us joined some 50,000 people down by Science World for a Red Bull sponsored Flugtag event.
The event consisted of many teams of people, from right across the country, driving various shapes and sizes of human-powered vehicles off the end of a pier into False Creek (ewwwww). The “goal” was to fly the longest distance. From the several entries that we saw, “flying” was a generous term. Here’s a one picture from the day … I’ve uploaded a bunch of other pictures to Flickr as a way to evaluate Flickr.
