That is a good one!
It looks like it might be the reflection of a REV flier.

There are power lines crossing above. Trees in the background.
First I was guessing autos maybe private airplanes parked or even mobile homes.
Now I am thinking a camping area, but there is too much white or light colored items.
Hmm!

I will give it to Ant, it is my front yard, not my back yard. Nothing special at all just a massive reflection of the sun. Check out the walk before run post and you can see how much the sun was shining from the other side.

Looks like she is taking a picture. The Rev is pointed away from her.

They aren't related. The lady is farther back than the kite. She is looking at something, and the flyer is just holding his kite to make it look like they are touching. (hint: The side of the kite is far too big compared to the lady.)

Watty's correct - it's foreshortening.

Either that, or it's an EXPERTLY-caught shot 1nanosecond before an enormous home-made Rev, sliding in from the right at over 100mph, cut an unsuspecting majorette clean in half.

You should SEE the next few frames, the gore was spectacular. I hear Quentin Tarantino is using it in "Kill Bill 3 - The Revolution".

The girl is only about 5'3" tall.
The vented REV I is an original from Revolution and has a wingspan of 9'(108").

Hmmmm.... I still think it's in front of her from the camera's viewpoint - 9' or not, if it was behind her it would need to be bigger than that for this view.

The REV is less then a foot from her.

That comment alone tells me you and I would get along great, I'm laughing hysterically.
