A normally comic event at the U.S. Red Bull Flugtags in which costumed contestants jump off the end of dock in a homemade device intended to fly was won this year by a crew dressed like chickens whose contraption actually managed to do more than plunge straight down. The Chicken Whisperers eked out a record flight 258 feet over water at the Long Beach, Calif., contest, as can be seen in this video.
