Just got back from the Vancouver Flugtag 2006 in False Creek and I have to admit, it was pretty cool. We got there a bit late so we missed the first team and the Red Bull Skydivers but got to see everything else.
A total of 30 teams entered this years Flugtag with a wide variety of cool “flying” devices. Some teams actually designed their machines to attempt to fly, where as others (like Suicide Blonde), based their design on pure coolness. The Suicide Blonde actually tried to launch a giant hairdryer and, of course, went straight down as soon as they got over the edge.

It was a good time, a great show and the Red Bull Skydivers at the very end were amazing. The speed they dropped in to land was incredible, hard to believe they could control their landings so well at such a speed.
I hope they have one here again next year, cause I’ll certainly be going!
