Red Bull Flugtag Takes new Twist

Funny story written by Neil M

Friday, 14 March 2008

Yesterday a man attempted the most convincing entry to the Red Bull Flugtag by running across the runway at Heathrow. Detectives called in to arrest the man are working on the theory that he was going to attempt to strap an Airbus 500 onto his back, haul the load to Hyde Park, and then hilariously dive into the water - or of course, fly at around 500 miles an hour.

Unfortunately, since 9-11, Airports have righteously lost their sense of humour and arranged to have the man arrested. Unavailable for a quote as he is currently being held by the Metropolitan Police, a close source said:

"He's always been nutty about planes you know - always waffling on about the wing span of a jumbo and the Wright Brothers first flight. Last year's Flugtag was a disaster - he turned up with alive albatross and was disqualified before even jumping. I knew he'd do something like this!"

Last night, the police were unwilling to comment on proceedings, stating simply "His Red bull has worn off".

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
