The Red Bull Air Race World Championship has taken place twice in Rotterdam; in 2005 and 2008. During this international air race, pilots must steer their aircraft around a defined course as fast as possible. The Rotterdam course had been laid out to include inflatable pylons with a height of about 12 metres. Witnessed by thousands of spectators and reaching dizzying speeds, the stunt pilots negotiated the trickiest of tracks over the Meuse near the Erasmus Bridge. www.frankversteegh.nl
