Hello!

Maybe this is kind of a long shot and I'm sorry if is to off-topic for the forum, but a long time ago someone posted the 2015 contest here and i thought it was a really cool show.

What it is about:
On the Iwatani Birdman Rally teams of contestants try to fly the farthest over a lake using self-made, man powered planes on various categories (like gliders and self propelled planes). If i remember correctly, most of the teams are form clubs from schools and universities and seem to take the contest very seriously. The tv show (at least from what i remember from 2015) seems to really bank on the stories and drama of the contest. I thought it was really fun in a climax of a sports/shounen manga kind of way. =)
Maybe more in line with the forum, the show is presented by a group of celebrities. In 2015, Hosei was one of them. This year Koji Higashino will be in it.


Last year i tried finding the contest again, but i couldn't find anything that wasn't a chopped up, 240p stream.
So my request is: Could anyone share the 2017 contest here, please? Or at least point me to here i could find a decent quality stream?

I don't know if that helps but, if i'm not mistaken, this year contest will air on 23/08 on Yomiuri TV.
Again, sorry if this is kind of out there, but if anyone could share it i would be very thankful. :bow:

Thanks, Ernie, for the video! =)

I didn't know Endo was going one of the commenters this year.

It was a great this year too. Very thrilling and fun!

Thanks again for sharing, Ernie!
