This past Saturday, the Red Bull Flugtag event was held in Long Beach harbor. 36 teams attempted to "fly" their crafts off of a 30-foot flight deck. The human-powered flying machines are always very imaginative, and this weekend's contestants were no exception.
There was one Dodger-related team, Team Mannywood, a group of five friends from Santa Clarita, who built a giant Manny Ramirez helmet, complete with dreadlocks and cans of Red Bull attached to the sides.
What they made was pretty impressive, although I can't say as much for their actual attempt at flying. It was fun to watch though.
Here they are putting everything together:
Here's the performance:
