“Momanababa”, the flying machine created by two local creative companies MOME and Manner, took off in “Redbull Flugtag 2016” held in Kai Tak Runway Park on 27th November. The project was fully supported by Macau General Aviation and Flying Association (MGAFA) and Allway Advertising & Production Ltd. (Allway).
“Momanababa” is the first participating group from Macau ever since. From planning, design to building, the flying machine took 4 months to complete.
The flying machine was 6 meters long with a giant glider on the top. Joe Liu, the Director of MOME and core participant, explained the design was inspired by the modes of transportation connecting Macau and Hong Kong. “We come up with an idea of combining ferry and helicopter in our design, and that becomes a cheerful spaceship.”

Though not receiving any prizes in the event, the “pilot” of “Momanababa” Hou was satisfied with the result. “Ours may not be perfect, as long as it can ‘fly’ a bit, that already means a lot to us.”

The owner of Allway Tina Wong was delighted by the perseverance of the members. “Creativity requires trials and practices in order to succeed, we encourage young people to bravely take up their first step to make progress.”
