Our flight

Why us

In Vermont we love the mountains, maple syrup, Red Bull and Beer! Maybe not in that order. But we are known as many things; Tree Huggers, Mountain Men, Red Necks and Lumberjacks! We thought of 2 things when we chose our entry; 1. Because we are Lumberjacks and 2. Because of Monty Python and their Lumberjack Skit! Go to You Tube - Monty Python Lumberjack - Greatest skit and song of all time!! The combo of creating an awesome craft, a hilarious skit all dressed up as Lumberjacks will be a tremendous way to show the nations Capitol that Vermont is in the house!!! (Not the White House) Flying a chopped down tree over the mighty Potomac would make George Washington proud and all of Red Bull nation!! Not to mention the enormous amount of awesomeness that we will provide on game day! We will leverage this to all of Vermont and our Red Bull accounts creating an excitement that will make this event a must see!!

Fun facts

The craft will be designed with its maximum length and wingspan. It will be of a cut down tree with the big branches as its wings. The Tail will be of a giant ax chopped into the trunk! The nose will be a chopped down look and the back flaps will be of axes as well and they will serve as the pushing of the craft mechanism. The log of the tree, which will be the body, will have 4 wheels that will detach on take off sending this majestic craft soaring into the Potomac!!
