Would-be 'pilots' tested their wings in home-made flying machines at a recent competition in California. VOA's Mike O'Sullivan reports with producer Deyane Moses that the event requires ingenuity and a sense of humor. More than 25 teams participated in National Redbull Flugtag Day, sponsored by a company that makes an energy drink. Flugtag is German for flying day, and enthusiasts build flying machines that are hurled off a 30-foot ramp into Rainbow Harbor at Long Beach, California.
