When yellow submarines fly
[Posted by Dave Haber on Wednesday, 06/25/08 7:51 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]

The Red Bull Flugtag is an event where teams build their own machines that will hopefully fly, all to raise money for charity. Some of the crews are university students of engineering going for first place and others just want to have fun.

This year at the Flugtag in Hyde Park, England, the Sub Aqua Club which meets on Tuesdays at the Ford club in Rush Green entered a truly inspiring sight for Beatles fans, their version of a flying Yellow Submarine.

It was created just for fun, but amazingly, it actually took second place in the competition out of 42 entries, staying in the air for an incredible 39 feet.

Oh, what joy, for every girl and boy!
