great pictures. unfortunately i guess the scale and length of the thing are just impossible to capture in only two dimensions. if you're lucky enough to see one of these in person, you won't forget it. they're super cool.

don't mean to hijack the thread as much as share the awesomeness of a cool kite train. you can see the train from the photo above in this video starting around the 00:14s mark. know the patchwork foil you see flying is at around 150 feet and observe how much farther the train is flying!
