From: Juan Miguel Suay Belenguer firstname.lastname@example.org
I am a Spanish specialist in historical kites. Here are eleven pictures of a reproduction of the U. S. Navy Target Kite Mark I, that I have made with the plans that are on your web site.
In the VIII Valencia international Kite Festival (Spain), that was celebrated on April 2 and 3, I tried to fly the naval kite, but the wind was slow and I could not fly it.
I hope that I can fly it, if so I will send you a picture in flight!

And then in April 2006 Juan sent me more pictures, this time from the IX Valencia International Kite Festival, April 22-23, 2006. The last three pictures below are from that event.
