MT. CRAWFORD -- Five valley men are sponsored by Redbull to be in a flugtag competition in DC in September. Out of 1600 applicants, 30 were chosen and one of the teams is from the valley.
The biggest splash in aviation history, The actual contest is how far the homemade plane travels.
Materials are still on the way, but part of the competition involves pictures and videos.
Team 'Made in 'Murica' has a Facebook fan page where you can like their posts.
But there's more, participant Brad Ewing says, "we have to do a 30 second skit before we push our plane, we have to have costumes. And of course all the social media leading up to it. All these challenges. I mean the more challenges we win the better. And i think we kind of set the bar for the first challenge because we really went above and beyond with the picture."
To help our Valley team win, follow their Twitter and Instagram at MadeInMurica00. The more likes and followers, the better.
