Red Bull Flugtag Teams Attempt to Fly in Death-Defying Stunts [VIDEO]

Red Bull Flutag 2011
MSNBC

At the 2011 Red Bull Flugtag competition, teams attempted to fly a variety of homemade gliders, including a giant beer stein, a cell phone, a pirate ship, a pink bra and even the DeLorean from ‘Back to the Future.’

It takes a special kind of person to build a contraption that probably won’t fly, then attempt to pilot it off a platform suspended 30 feet over water. Special, and maybe a little crazy. 

Although it sounds like fun, the competition wasn’t entirely free of danger. One contestant, Chip Santiago, actually appeared to knock himself out.

Still, one team emerged victorious. For the second time, Willy Wonka’s Amazing Flying Adventure won the event after flying 50 feet. Always bet on Wonka.

Watch highlights from this year’s Flugtag competition below.
