A new meaning to "Oba can fly."
At the arrival of the Bin Laden kite, this America Airlines Kite made an emergency landing.
This was one of the two huge kites on show. Nearby spectators assumed a safe viewing position as they waited to see if it would fly or not. Here you can see the guys preparing to raise the kite.
This attempt failed as the kite decided to dive head first into the ground. "Don't give up fellas, leh we try again". They decided to raise the kite from behind instead....
but unfortunately the kite had other plans. The frame broke and it slumped to the ground. On-the-spot repairs were futile.
