The Red Bull Flugtag (FLEW-tahg) was in downtown Saint Paul. Flugtag is a German word that means flying day.
The idea is to build colorful contraptions that are pushed off a ramp. Most crash into the water but some actually fly.
One such machine was made by a team called Major Trouble. It floated on the air for 207 feet, breaking the previous record of 195 feet in 2000.
