12 p.m.: The Hangars Open: The crafts will be lined up with the team members getting ready for flight. Interviews will be available at this time, so feel free to contact us with specific interview requests.
2 p.m.: Prepare For Takeoff: The first craft is set to take flight off a 30-foot high ramp at 2 p.m. after the team’s 30-second skit as an attempt to win over the judges and crowd. After the last team takes off, the awards ceremony will follow, when the Red Bull Flugtag Miami winner and the People’s Choice winner will be crowned.
More than 85,000 Downtown Miami residents and visitors will gather at Bayfront Park Saturday, Nov. 3 to watch as pigs fly – in the form of bacon anyway – as Red Bull Flugtag makes its way back to Miami for 2012. Defending champions, members of Magic Carpet Ride, are back to defend their soaring 2010 title to fly the farthest against some wacky flight crews – including the Bacon Soldiers, Banana Pelada and $2.50 – before splashing into the sea below.
