India’s 1st Red Bull Flugtag came to a spectacular, splashing end!

Visar-jet from Mumbai. On hand to dish out points for design, creativity and sheer craziness was a star-studded panel of judges including Bangalore natives Nikhil Chinnappa and Ashwini Ponnappa along with Monica Dogra, Rannvijay Singh Singha, Varun Aaron, and Tania Sachdev. Each team consisted of four brave flight crew members with the courage to dive from the ‘flight deck’ 22 feet above Sankey Tank. Just as important as the actual distance travelled in the air was the showmanship element, with all the teams looking to entertain the crowd and get the judges on their side. After a long day of thrills, spills and short-haul flights, Visar-jet from Mumbai took top spot and managed to fly a distance of almost 60 ft. The team said ecstatically, “The fact that our craft flew and the judges liked our concept is an unbelievable feeling. There was a lot of hard work that went into winning this trophy and we are glad that it has all paid off. Building this craft for India’s 1st Red Bull Flugtag has also brought us all together after a long time.” Team Talpade from Bengaluru and Team Majestic Beast from Nagpur were placed second and third respectively. Additionally, Team Puliyogare Mix won the audience choice award. Bangalore now joins an elite list of 140 cities across the world that have hosted Red Bull Flugtag as India also became a part of the club of just 47 countries.
