Vetri Crew Making Mini-Documentary On Flugtag Team

The Beast of Amis is becoming real.
The Beast of Amis is becoming real.

Chef Brad Spence and his team are getting pretty serious about their Red Bull Flugtag ambitions. They've already signed on an engineer who worked for NASA, and are being followed around by a film crew documenting the progress of the project. "We're going to be practicing our platform diving next week at the Knowlton Swim Club, since the Flugtag has you jump from a platform, and it's going to be the same height," Spence told Eater. "And we're starting to do weight training with the jiu-jitsu dojo to prepare and get in shape."

The technical drawings are being completed (pictured above) and production is about to start on the "Beast of Amis," which looks pretty close to what Spence sketched out on a paper doily a few months back. Will the team add another title to their already full trophy room? We will all find out on September 15, when they take to the sky.
