THE LONGEST EGG DROP EVER
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What is the longest egg drop in the world?
We were in for a surprise on this one.
On August 22 1994 David
Donoghue threw an egg out of a helicopter onto a
golf course in the UK, from a height of 700 feet.
Apparently the trick was to get the egg moving forward at the same speed it's
falling, then have it land on a grassy slope. Looks like it worked as he now has
the record for the longest egg drop without breaking in the world.
We were actually expecting to find a record for your
standard school egg drop, where you wrap an egg in materials, then drop it from
a building. We could not find an official record for this kind of drop, but
found independent winning drops of about 100 feet.
