Posted:Hello to all the London peeps!

You've heard the expression 'Red Bull gives you wings' - well here's your chance to see for yourself. On Sunday 3rd August at The Serpentine in London's Hyde Park, the U.K's very first Flugtag takes place - a free event for all to attend.

Following a nationwide advertising campaign, entries have been submitted for the highly sought after 'pilots licence' for the day and the forty finalists can be viewed in the Competitor Info Section from 23rd May 2003.

The event will see the daredevil pilots flying their man-powered aircrafts from a 6m high ramp in the Serpentine. The world will be watching as they gather speed on the ramp, soar into the wild blue yonder, and defy gravity for a few glorious moments before splashdown!

The Red Bull Flugtag is most definitely the dream competition for crazy showmen and Jackass wannabes with a desire to take to the skies in a very unique way!

The show starts at 1pm, but get there early to guarantee a good view!

Posted:I went, and it was completely packed and extremely hot and sunny. I stayed for about the first 6 entries but then i'd had enough of being squashed. Didn't see any other HoP people there, got no reply to Dyke Boy's sms. Anyway, there's a few photos here:

Posted:I was there all day with a load of mates, saw BamBam, Lolli and a few other scattered around but it was too packed (and the phone networks were seriously overloaded so you could hardly use them) to easily find anyone.

150,000 people!
