UM Engineering students work on completing their aircraft on Wednesday afternoon that will take flight at Redbull Flugtag on Saturday. The event, held at Bayfront Park in Downtown Miami, brings together teams that construct homemade aircraft and fly them from an elevated barge into the ocean, aiming to fly the furthest distance. Last year's team won the "People's Choice Award" for their Angry Birds themed craft. Vote for this year's team by texting "MIA15" to 72855 (voting opens at noon today).
