Red Bull Flugtag – 11/10/2012

This fun event starts at 1:00pm on Saturday, November 10, 2012. Flugtag means “flying day” in German to celebrate the many brave men, who down through the ages built and flew, or not, their human-powered flying machines.
36 teams with their homemade vehicles will compete by launching themselves off a 30-foot high pier to soar as far as possible before crashing into the bay.
Contestants will be judged by their flight’s distance, creativity and showmanship. You can probably get some good shots depending on where you are standing. A large crowd is expected, so try to get their early.
It all takes place at Mc Covey Cove, 3rd Street / Terry A. Francois Blvd., in San Francisco next to the AT & T Park.
