SOOO CLOSE! Red Bull Flugtag World Record Almost Broken in Dubai

Eventual winner came 3 feat short of the record!


Crowd Go Wild As Record is Nearly Broken

25,000 people gathered down by the Dubai Creak yesterday afternoon to watch the 3rd annual Red Bull Flugtag (German for Flying Day) event. The event was won by the Millennium Falcons team, from more than 30 competitors. Their attempt was 71 meters, short of the 78 meters set in 2013 by the Chicken Whisperers in Long Beach, USA. From the brand that gives you wings, have a watch of this video to see all the fails, and the eventual winning attempt. So so close!
