Red Bull Flugtag 2011
Tampa, FL is one of over 35 cities around the world to host a Red Bull Flugtag. Red Bull Flugtag is not so much a competition as it is a wildly popular spectator sport. At a Red Bull Flugtag competitors launch their outrageous homemade flying machines off a tall pier into a body of water; the "flight" time is normally the time it takes for this vessel to fall into the water.
This year's Tampa Red Bull Flugtag takes place October 8, 2011, at the Tampa Convention Center. Gates open at 11:00 AM, the first flight is at 1:00 PM. Plan a trip to see this creative Tampa event and stay at Sheraton Suites Tampa Airport Westshore. Convenient to the Tampa airport and the Tampa Convention Center, Sheraton Suites Tampa Airport Westshore is the perfect Red Bull Flugtag hotel.
