This massive kite, weighing in at a hefty 1 ton and measuring 12.9 metres in height and 13.3 metres in width, rose 30 metres in the air on Tuesday.
But despite being controlled by about 50 people, after a brief flight the extremely windy conditions took their toll, causing the bamboo frame to break. Leaving the briefly majestic looking kite in this sorry state.
To make matters worse it came down on an unlucky group of spectators, injuring 8 of them. Although as far as I’m aware, none of them seriously.
So that’s alright then.
