I don't know about NEWS, but I have been on television a number of times flying my quad back in the 90s. Twice I was interviewed very shortly flying my REV on German Television and once on Austrian television. In North America, no interview only flying with a dual line.

Well, right after getting my B-series i had a local photo journalist looking for something to sell to the local papers and he was inthralled with the my basic precision flying and dive stops, he was getting in the way so i told him to shove off, and if he wanted a picture just take one of the kite, not me. i like being in the backround, i may fly it, but the kite does a lionshare of the work. An the guy would have been way too much of a target for my obession of flying on, and around people... Muhahahahahha...

Believe me, we'd love to as well.

I'm hoping to return to Berck next year and I'd probably commit crime to get over to England

Totally staged! Adam set me up to do that, with the idea of making people laugh... Glad it worked! :D

Thanks for the kudos guys, it was a whole lot of fun to do... Adam was a great interviewer, and actually did real well during his lessons.

That was great. You did a great job. Talk about getting "on the map!"

Now if we could just get some of the west coast media to get with the program.
