A blog detailing our collection of Peter Powell kites, and chronicling our flying of these kites. Plus a bit of PP kite history thrown in. Our collection to date can be seen here. I am keen to expand the collection, so if you have an old Peter Powell kite, whether made in the UK or the US, gathering dust and looking for a new home, why not get in touch? Depending on the kite (does it bring something new or different to my collection?), its condition (is it flyable? how much TLC does it need?), and the price you ask (+ shipping if from outside the UK), we may well be able to do a deal.

Malmesbury kite festival, a prototype ultralight stack, and a group photo

In the previous blog post, I mentioned getting our pair of custom Peter Powell kites, and Malmesbury kite festival in 2014 was the first time we flew them in a public display.

But this kite festival had a couple of other Peter Powell dimensions. First of all, after chatting with Mark and Paul, we were given the handles of a prototype ultralight 3-stack to try out.

Lots of fun to fly, but we did have to get used to not getting the tails tangled in the stacking lines ...

And secondly, thanks to a kind and willing member of the public, we got a very nice group photo including Paul, Mark, and, of course, Peter himself!
