Indoor distance record

i remember a while back we had some discussions about distance records and how legit they are or arent and where they could hold it indoors and im not sure anybody brought this up .

anyway heres a link to the indoor distance record of 471ft ,which was in the then still in service aircraft carrier J.F.K and thrown by Dan Berman and some other dg records too http://www.wfdf.org/index.php?page=records/index.htm

471 seems a lot more reasonable than 821.....I only have to add 100 to my best outdoor toss rather than more than double my best. I never threw indoors though......hmmmm. The mall, the airport, some hangar somewhere......don't even airport hangars have updrafts and wind like conditions?

Hangar bay could be used, especially if it was empty. The bootcamp in Great Lakes also had/has some amazingly huge hangar buildings, not sure the length...will have to fire up the google earth tonight and measure but I wouldn't be surprised if they were near aircraft carrier length.

Yeah I wouldn't mind giving that desert wind a try - I can throw as far as wiggy
The updraft and constant 40 mph wind in that place - along with no obstructions for miles, makes for a pretty unique airflow - something you just can't get on a ball field surrounded by trees. All you gotta do is pick the right direction to throw, and I'd venture that most anyone here would add 100-200 feet to their longest throw.

Ha! Most everyone..... except me. 200'?? I think I'd need a freakin' hurricane at my back to accomplish that. Another thought....I think I'd pay(not much, but still) to see a 14 yr old throw 700'. I know I'd pay to see someone throw 821'. It's gotta be a sight to behold.

This would be a pretty cool distance record to own:

most aircraft carriers are about 1,081ft if i recall that right and i assume that there are hangers that length it would be wierd to throw inside.
