Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

lol - i have a hard time viewing it too.  What I have found is that you cross your eyes until you see three images, then try and focus on the center image and it will appear to be 3D.  You will still see a haze of the other two outside images, just concentrate on the center one for a couple seconds.  Going full screen helps too.

This worked for me.  Neat trick.  Brings the kite to life.

My observation is that this results in a "two plane" image: the kite as a flat image in the foreground, and everything else as a flat image in the background. Is that an accurate description?

No, that is not correct for this picture.
Although, a 3D photo can be done to look like you describe.

In my 3D photo the kite is, as you describe, on a vertical plane.

However,

The background is on a plane which is tilted away from the viewer. In this way, the lower background is closer to the observer, while the top is furthest away. It merely depends on which way the 2 background images are canted to change the direction of angled background.

But I think it's still "two plane" in the sense that the background is flat. There's no 3D angle between the horizontal ground and the mountains, for example.

Still pretty nifty!
