This is what happens when folks who think they're Buzz Lightyear get jacked up on Red Bull: Flugtag. In German, it means "flying day." In St. Paul it means that 90,000 people will show up to watch them mostly fall, but sometimes actually fly, off a 30-foot ramp into the Mississippi River aboard homemade gliders.

Team Major Trouble and the Dirty Dixies went home the winners, flying 207 feet -- 12 feet farther than the 10-year-old Flugtag record. Check out the video:
