In 2013 we finally got some answers… why did these chickens jump off a pier in an attempt to fly? As they were taking part in Red Bull Flugtag of course! Introducing ‘The Chicken Whisperers’, who currently hold the World Record for the longest Red Bull Flugtag flight.

The team managed to fly an astonishing 78.5 meters (that’s the length of 261.6 chickens in an orderly line) in 2013. They beat the previous record by 9 meters, and so officially flew to the top of the pecking order.
We’ve finally discovered the vital truth about being a chicken, not afraid or weak, but defiant and brave.
Red Bull Flugtag Canada is ready for its return to Toronto on September 23rd; we just need you to sign-up, soar and break the record. Or are you not chicken enough?
