Fallout 76 Scorchbeast to take flight at Red Bull Flugtag, 2018
On 10th November – just four days before the official release of Fallout 76 – join four up-and-coming engineers as they achieve flight upon one of the most feared creatures of the post-apocalyptic world of West Virginia, the Scorchbeast!
At this year’s Red Bull Flugtag, a team from the University of Newcastle’s School of Engineering will rid the sunny shores of cataclysmic evil as they glide the beast away from the sanctity of civilization, rewriting aviation history in the process.
Flugtag challenges the brave and brainy to design, build and pilot home-made flying machines off a 6-metre high flight deck in hopes of soaring into the wild blue yonder. This year, teams are judged on three criteria: flight distance, creativity of the craft and showmanship with Bethesda’s courageous team, dubbed the ‘Vault Boys’, to consist of:
- Jack Piercy: 2nd year Mechanical Engineering student at the University of Newcastle. 20 years old and originally from Canberra, ACT. Enjoys working on his Datsun 1200 Ute and trips to the hardware store.
- Jackson Woodbine: 2nd year Mechanical/ Mechatronics student at the University of Newcastle. 19 years old from Kurri Kurri, NSW. Enjoys motor sport and fantasy football.
- Sam Harrison: 2nd year Mechanical/ Mechatronics student at the University of Newcastle. 19 years old from Newcastle, NSW. Enjoys playing and watching football, and live music.
- Cameron Lovell: 2nd year Mechanical/ Mechatronics student at the University of Newcastle. 19 years old from Newcastle, NSW. Enjoys snowboarding and photography.
