The Rok and Rev Tour 1992
Starting in Denver, Colorado and ending in Lubbock, Texas with JMH.
This was an experiment in flying JMH kites alongside the Revs with his graphic design.
In 2016 two of the kites were re-framed and bridled by Paul Morgan.
The Red sail was missing. (Dark Blue one was located as at 25/04/2020)Show more
The Dark Blue sail arrived as at 10/08/2021 and needed re-bridling and re-sparing. A set of spiral wound carbon rods was prepared for all four sails.
Three point bridle, top and bottom, set ready for field adjustments on the Dark Blue kite. 14/08/2021.
The red sail was re-made, framed and bridled as at 28th March 2022.

Some more configuration changes on a shorter anchored flying line, this time without the pilot kite.
Some more work to do finding a quick setting solution for the last kite in the train.
Images thanks to Marian Linford.
Portsmouth 30th-31st July 2022
Thanks to Lex Kraaijeveld for these four images from Saturday 30th July.
For the first session, the smaller Parafoil was launched followed by the Rokkaku stack. The large 1991 Parafoil was then launched and as the Rokkaku Stack was perfectly stable this group of images were captured.

Jørgen Møller Hansen banners and preparation of the four rokkaku sails in the 1992 graphic. The bow sliders needed to be fixed as the line has been polished and the aluminium sliders have lost their gripping edge.
