Rochelle group thrives at Flugtag

Posted:
ROCHELLE (WREX) -

A Rochelle group had high flying hopes for a win at a world famous aviation competition.

The "Bamzoniacs" competed in Saturday's Red Bull Flugtag in Chicago. 13 News previewed their air stream travel trailer design last week. The team spent more than 100 hours working on it. After all that hard work, they launched the aircraft and after a brief moment in the air, splashed into the water.

Despite the short ride, the group came close to a win. It placed second with a score of 38 points and a distance of 57 feet.

The Bamzoniacs have qualified for every Chicago Flugtag event since it started.
