More than 30 flug tag crafts took on Hurricane Earl winds and the Camden Waterfront on Saturday in the first Red Bull event to grace the city. The concept: to create a craft weighing a minimum of 450 pounds and get it to fly the farthest distance before plunging into the Delaware River. A giant red “Ill” cap piloted by “Giant Flying Llama” took the prize (bragging rights, and a whole lot of free advertising for Red Bull) at 36 feet. But these cats aren’t no ordinary joes, Temple alumni, of course. Pick up zeeee Temple News on Tuesday for a quality article by Walbert Young in which he attempts to capture the ludicrosity.
