Red Bull Air Race

By , September 16, 2009 3:24 pm

This video is of the Red  Bull Air Race from Budapest, Hungary.  This is truly one of the coolest sports on the planet.  I am in awe of the technology that is at work here as well as the skill of the pilots.  These guys are doing things that I could never imagine could be done with an airplane.  And they are doing it so close to ground – there is so little margin for error.  The mind-blowing thing about this particular race venue (this the 4th out of 6 races this year) is the pilots start the race by flying under a bridge!!!  That is insane!!!  And insanely cool!!!

(Note:  make sure you play the video full-screen.  I have made sure the video is plays at it’s highest quality – which, frankly, is breathtaking.)
