VIP section – close to the action
I still say that it was a pretty sweet deal to be in the VIP section. But no matter if you were an honored guest, attendant, flier, or spectator without portfolio, it looks like a good time was had by all.
Going flying – swimming
Even if you’re not close, you have a good time
Good to go. Built by the cheapest builder with the cheapest materials.
…which says that the construction must be safe. You can make it out of cardboard. Who cares? It’s one use only. You do need a crew to shove you over the cliff. See the safety nets to the side. But is it necessary to keep the cart attached? I keep thinking that this landing’s gotta hurt.
Failure to separate
There’s no crying allowed
Yup, they didn’t make it either. But the crew was very entertaining. Apparently the rules only allow one pilot. Safety, right?
Remember Robin Williams – genie voice in Aladdin? This ain’t him…and the monkey and the girl (guy)? I was wondering if it would be allowed for a real woman to dress like that in public. I suppose the same can be said for cross dressing. The flying carpet didn’t…fly.
Reminds me of the MGM lion
Sometimes it’s like watching a plane crash. You are too stupefied to turn your eyes from certain failure. These guys thought they were gonna fly?
He already knew he was in trouble
Live or die – sudden catastrophic failure
Enjoying the day
Tipping before it flies. We bet it would fall over.
This was the first to try… and fail. They couldn’t even keep it straight before it flew/fell.
Getting in was a chore
There were sandbags to steady the ship
Actually the contraption made a straight flight. But there was a lot of fill time for the DJ before the thing was pushed over the edge.
It took a while to steady this. I guess the pilot had insurance.
The audience was kept well back
It was anti-climatic when they pushed off
We were surprised it flew straight. Pilot lived
I keep thinking that Orville and Wilbur must be shaking their heads. Flying hamburgers? Super heroes?
Flying hamburger? Imagine that!
Halloween in Jeddah
Paint the rest of the teeth
The Wright brothers had a bicycle shop
Crispy Creme shirt and KFC. Just chillin’
Entertainment or corporate it was hard to say. All that I can say is that this event was well thought out and coordinated to provide fun and safety. Which is to say that it’s been done before to the delight of the crowd in attendance.
