It was officially top secret, and 'was' is the key word; James Stewart is in for the Red Bull Flugtag event in Miami for this coming Saturday, July 10th. What's Flugtag? More or less, a bunch of ingenious thinkers are selected to build human powered flying devices which are pushed from a high elevation, over water, in attempt to set a record distance.

James Stewart has enlisted the help of Randy Yoho to engineer his craft, and Pagio and Sorby to be his human rockets that will launch him off the platform. Right now the record sits at 155 feet, and according to our sources they plan on crushing that record. Wind is the only thing that needs to be on their side, otherwise it will be a straight plummet into the water 50 feet below.

And Miami Red Bull Flugtag here.

Red Bull Flugtag challenges the brave and brainy to design, build and pilot homemade flying machines off a 30-foot high flight deck in hopes of soaring into the wild blue yonder…or often, plunging into the waters below. Flugtag, which means “flying day” in German, pushes the envelope of human-powered flight, but competitors need more than airtime to reach the podium. Teams are judged on three criteria: flight distance, creativity of the craft, and showmanship. This criteria has inspired flying tacos, prehistoric pterodactyls, winnebagos with wings and even Snoopy and the gang to grace the Flugtag flight decks! And after a year with no Red Bull Flugtags in the US, 2010 promises to be bigger and better than ever.
