Ha ha it's funny you should say that - we were up at delicate arch this morning and I was just thinking it would be fantastic (if very very scary) to fly there.

Will have a look for the site - we found a school field but they were practicing football on it!

cheers

Well, back home in england sadly- only managed to fly the twice in the end which was a shame - I've never been through so much space, with so little room to fly! Totally fantastic trip though.

One of the (many) high points was driving down (and up) the Moki Dugway - an elevation change of 1100 feet in 3 miles of dirt road! However, having seen pictures of this sign, I brough an iQuad sticker all the way expecially to add to it :kid_devlish: - but when we got there, the sign has gone! Maybe someone just stole it wholesale - there was just the posts remaining...

How about a new $13million 246-foot-long Airship as a famous background.
It flies out of Moffett Field and gives tours of the SF Bay Area for around $500 a pop.
Gondola seats 12.
Shortly before I took this picture, it was almost overhead at around 1200 feet. I had the kite flying to look like it was lifting up the airship. That was with both hands flying though.
I just started to fly my new Rev. kite a short time ago and pretty much new to kite flying. Last time I flew was mid to late '60's. One handed flying and pict taking still needs a lot more work. Between almost dropping the camera and crashing the kite, I parked the kite and took the pict. It does fly by several times a day, so just maybe I'll get a better pict and with the kite flying.
I'll post more picts soon as I am flying home next week that will have a more tropical flavor, if I can get my wife to take the picts. I am here now taking care of my elderly mother.

Since we seem to have moved on to blimps, I think this is now appropriate:

rev_ceil400.jpg

This is an early Rev I (note the old logo!) flying on...um...it was probably 100' (maybe 75'?) lines inside the Hindenburg hangar in Lakehurst, NJ. We used to do indoor flys there back in the mid-90s. The kite belonged to Dave Arnold, and his wife, Sherrie, took the picture. I'm frankly not sure if Dave or I was the person flying one the pic was taken, as we were taking turns with the kite.

Stock sail, spectra bridle, two-wrap frame. Loads of fun...

There's plenty of info out there about Hangar 1 for those interested....though I kind of doubt that we'll ever get to fly there again.

Here we go again,, Denny and his shuttle pictures. What can I say, I conceder it a famous landmark.
"CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- The space shuttle finally piggybacked its way to Florida on Friday, after wintry storms and crosswinds again delayed Endeavour's trek to the Kennedy Space Center.
Endeavour, fixed to the top of a modified 747, first began the return to its Florida home Wednesday morning from Edwards Air Force Base in California. It took off Thursday afternoon after an overnight stop in Fort Worth, Texas, but again had to stop for the night at Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana.
The shuttle entered Florida airspace around 2 p.m. Friday"

I was very cool.

Mr. Denny,
Those are great shots. I stop to watch plains whenever possible; anything in flight is amazing to me. Your combo can't be beat. The colors of your Rev are also perfect. Any chance I could get a copy of the last one? I have large photo frame with about 20 4x6 spaces which I am dedicating totally to those special Rev shots. Hopefully, it will look as good as I anticipate.

PM me your email and I will send 6 un-cropped shots so you can edit at will.
Because the end of the program is near, there is a very good chance this is the last time we will see the shuttle in this configuration which is why after all these years I went down to take the shots.
Thank you all for the nice coments.

I've always done that as well, even before getting into kite flying! :D Now I like to chase birds and planes with my Rev. Hee.

I confess I like to surprise seagulls. I see them coming up the beach, take the rev down low, once they get close enough...
