New Zealand Air Sports Event Will Stream Online
Next week in New Zealand, the first Air Sports Live event will feature 10 different competitions, including paragliding, skydiving, helicopters and hot air ballooning, all set against a spectacular alpine backdrop. Event organizers promise "high-adrenalin viewing," with skydivers competing in a race around pylons, helicopter pilots performing "phenomenal stunts" and dramatic high-G aerobatics. If you can't be in New Zealand for this extravaganza, you can watch many of the competitions via online video. Some of the videos are pay-per-view, but still cheaper than an airline ticket to the antipodes. This week, glider competitions are under way, and next week, the 10-sport event will run Dec. 27 and 28.
Organizers say it will be the largest multi-air-sport event ever all in one place.
