Dyson engineers build flying machines

Dyson engineers are problem solvers and when they’re not working on new Dyson technology, they occasionally take on other engineering challenges after hours. The latest challenge was to build a machine that could fly through an obstacle course built from spare Dyson parts.

More than 100 Dyson engineers entered in both the UK and South-East Asia to compete. Balloons, planes, helicopters and several machines that defied description took to the air. Here are the results.
