While most teams are ridiculously unsuccessful some competitors actually manage to become airborne and in 2013 a world record was broken.

The Chicken Whisperers entered the Flugtag on Long Beach in California and in front of a crown of 110,000 their contraption soared an astonishing 78.5 meters.

They beat the previous record by 9 meters. Watch for yourself:

Think it looks like fun? The Red Bull Flugtag is coming to Dublin on May 20th.
