Kite Day in Zionsville: some sky visible under our wings
Kim, James and I went to Zionsville today to attempt to soar the hill on Kite Day, a local yearly festival. We were blessed by an ESE wind blowing 10 to 20 mph. Almost perfect conditions, if it were not for the gusts and the sometimes 45 % cross wind. Anyway, we were unable to park the glider up in the air, but we did make altitude gains: as you can see we get high enough that you can see some sky under the wing from the videos Kim recorded from the top of the hill. James and I got each 4 little flights. We had a few spectators and quite a lot of interest.
