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
