about the video

Handmade aircraft attempted to fly off Hong Kong’s old airport runway before plummeting into iconic Victoria Harbor during the third Red Bull Flugtag event in Hong Kong. The majority of the 41 funky and wonderful aircraft in shapes of cartoon characters, foods and animals plunged straight into the water. One of the contestants, Sylvia Tang, was inspired by a character from the famous ‘’Angry Birds’’ game, saying she wanted to use the word ‘’angry’’ to reflect the feeling of Hong Kong citizens towards the city’s political situation.
