Fresno’s entry in the Red Bull Flugtag in Long Beach didn’t sail their human-powered aircraft to a win. It would have taken a lot because the winning team, The Chicken Whisperers, set a new world record by gliding 258 feet. The old record was 29 feet set by a German team.
But, the local Red, White and Brew team of Raffy Sencion, Tim Anderson, Jacob Sencion, Dayne Jer Eddings and Victor Zuniga, proved again to be crowd pleasers. For the third consecutive year, they brought home the People’s Choice Award.
Here are some photos from their competition on Saturday. No word on whether or not the local team will try for their fourth consecutive People’s Choice Awards next year. Odds are they will be back.
