Thousands of spectators descend on Dun Laoghaire harbour for Red Bull Flugtag

43 teams of aspiring aviators battled it out for the top prize in Dublin today.

TODAY SAW Dun Laoghaire harbour taken over by the Red Bull Flugtag.

The free family event, which organisers say was attended by 65,000 people, saw competitors hand-build their own flying machines and attempt to sail them off a nine-metre flight deck.

With 43 teams taking part, a judgment panel took creativity, showmanship and distance into account and chose Pink Panther from Kildare (pictured in final photo) as the winning entrants after they glided 12 metres.
