Primitive VHS Video of Fantasy of Flight at Disney World in 1989

Recommended Posts

I started flying kites relatively late in life. Following a fifteen year career working in the entertainment industry as a theatrical lighting designer, I was given a stunt kite as a gift.  Well, that was it! I was hooked. I proceeded to develop a stunt kite show which performed at outdoor festivals and special events throughout Canada and the Eastern United States. Our kite show matured, and in 1989 I ended up on the lagoon at Epcot Center/Disney World, Florida.  My Kite Team (The Shooting Star Kite Show) performed a series of 450 stunt kites shows, choreographed to music while being pulled behind ski boats powered by 200 horse power motors creating our wind. The show was called "Fantasy of Flight" and was performed five times daily throughout a three month contract during the summer of 1989. 
This is a short exert of the shows performed.  Note you will hear the cues being communicated between pilots, boats, drivers and ground crew via Clear Com.
