BEIJING - If you find it hard enough to open a bottle cap now, just imagine what it would be like attempting it from an airborne helicopter with a tool attached to its landing gear.

Mission Impossible and Holywood step aside; that's one of the bizarre feats that will be attempted this month in Hainan province. The 2011 Fly Rally air sports competition will take place from Dec 17-30 on the southern Chinese island and will feature six aerobatic categories, including glider rally racing, a paramotor contest and precise helicopter control.

The multi-discipline event has attracted 80 aircraft and more than 200 air sports athletes nationwide to chase titles and showcase some unique air stunts between the blue sky and sea.
