Delta (triangular) Kite (Cerf-volant)

Delta (triangular) Kite (Cerf-volant)
Tempelhofer Park

A kite is a tethered aircraft. The necessary lift that makes the kite wing fly is generated when air (or in some cases water) flows over and under the kite's wing, producing low pressure above the wing and high pressure below it. This deflection also generates horizontal drag along the direction of the wind. The resultant force vector from the lift and drag force components is opposed by the tension of the one or more lines or tethers. The anchor point of the kite line may be static or moving (e.g., the towing of a kite by a running person, boat, free-falling anchors as in paragliders and fugitive parakites or vehicle).

Kites were used approximately 2,800 years ago in China, where materials ideal for kite building were readily available: silk fabric for sail material; fine, high-tensile-strength silk for flying line; and resilient bamboo for a strong, lightweight framework. Alternatively, the kite authors Clive Hart and Tal Streeter hold that leaf kites existed far before that time in what is now Indonesia, based on their interpretation of cave paintings on Muna Island off Sulawesi.

Der Zirkus William aus Müncheberg reist mit einer 40-köpfigen Truppe von Artisten, Tiertrainern und Helfern, mit neun Kindern und rund 100 Tieren - darunter Pferde, Kamele, Zebras, Schlangen, Löwen und Tiger - durchs Land. Die Willes halten das Unternehmen zusammen, das, neben den bunten Zelten, Hängern und Wohnwagen immer auch großzügige Freigehege für die Tiere bereitstellt.

My sister photographed 'her' green kite flying in front of the Washington Monument yesterday. Then I see your post and I think of the 'Red Swallow" Lyapunov Fractal here: element90.wordpress.com/2012/03/05/lyapunov-fractals
