Kerry St. Dennis, a member of the Toronto Kite Fliers, started a discussion on the TKF Yahoo group about a Target Kite video that was on YouTube.com.
It’s pretty amazing to see these kites in action, the harness and reel setup is pretty interesting as well. 🙂 The video was produced by the Bureau of Aeronautics of the American Army in 1945!
Others chimed in with links to better quality video. http://www.carnetdevol.org/target/va-video.htm
