That pic is fascinating :up:
It's a great satisfaction knowing that for a brief point in time you made a difference.

John N Mitchell, who took the photo, is a member of our club and an occasional poster.

I'm flying the red kite, which is showing just a bit of itself at the top of the photo.

If I count correctly, there are at least 16 kites involved in that photo. Whew.
Do you want a new kite? Build one! Enjoy it three ways, planning, construction, flying.

Actually, although we did fly a mega-fly with 16 fliers, in this photo there are 9 kite fliers.
Don't forget these are quads, not duals! Still, that's 36 lines.

The photo below shows the fliers. The rightmost 4 people are the ones who's kites show above.
Monkey Boy (David Hathoway) is on the green kite, the kite with yellow is Mark Lummas, (I forget the next guy's name :oops: ), and me on the red kite.

Ahhh, OK, I see where my error occurred. I counted the lines in the picture. Both above the twist and below the twist. So I counted each line twice.

No wonder I flunked math in grade school! [smiley smilie=11 fontcolor=000000 shadowcolor=000000 shieldshadow=1]I goofed[/smiley]
