WOW – Kite Flying
Talk about formation flying—this guy would make one heck of a pilot!!
You have to watch this, it is beautiful, not to mention just plain amazing. I had a hard time keeping one kite off the ground.
The man flying the 3 kites is in his 80s, and he’s from Canada. He comes to the Washington State International Kite Festival every year. His skin is like leather as he normally flies with his shirt off. He is deaf, so when he flies we hold our hands up and wave them for applause. He flies 2 with his hands and the 3rd one is attached to his waist.
You must watch to the end to see the amazing landing of that last kite! I would have those kites so tangled up, you could never get them separated again! And of course, make sure the volume is turned up because the music is wonderful and totally reflects the soaring of the kites. Beautiful!
Enjoy! What coordination.
