As High as a Kite

It's the annual Kite festival on Margate sands this weekend and if the weather holds, it's well worth a visit.

At noon, in time to catch a good weather window, I was towing a banner advertising the event between Birchington and Broadstairs, with an orbit of Westwood Cross thrown-in for good measure.

Some of the kites are pretty high up and needed to be treated with some caution, one small one in particular being at a thousand feet, which forced me to keep a very respectable distance from them all as I orbited between Dreamland and the harbour arm, before breaking off, from time to time to visit other areas of Thanet.

If anyone has a picture of the aircraft and banner, please send it over.
