 Solar Eclipse Cornwall,

 11th August 1999


Our first flight of a 64 cell 'monster' was on the afternoon of the 1999 Total Solar Eclipse near Looe, Cornwall. The field was one we had found earlier in the week, being pretty open from most directions - the ancient remains of a stone circle were secondary!

The first flight, unfortunately there wasn't much wind

Waiting for the wind, we eventually made several 'towed' flights
