There’s no denying that Red Bull Flugtag is the sporting event of the year.
Sure, AFL and NRL cop most of the glory but really, how many of us regular plebs can participate as professionals? Very few. With Red Bull Flugtag though, anyone with a bit of creativity can get involved in the longstanding tradition of throwing yourself off a 6-metre flight deck in a questionably built flying device.
If you weren’t at Mrs Macquarie’s Chair last Saturday, you 100% missed out on the shenanigans that went down – 36 teams (gracefully) threw themselves into the Sydney Harbour and it was an absolute sight.
While PEDESTRIAN.TV‘s own crew competed admirably and nabbed the 13th spot (see the mullet in all its glory below), it was the Chip Off The Old Block crew who took home the gold.
Have a gander at what went down in the ol’ vid here:
Fly my pretties, fly.

Other special mentions for 11/10 creativity include The Bin Chook, A Shrimp On The Barbie and Splashed Avo. Quality names and flying devices mates, well played.
Thousands, or maybe even millions (tough to tell on account of my poor eyesight) turned out for the annual event which has been doing the rounds since 1992, sheesh.
