 Security was not amused: when the kite flew about 2  minutes I was asked to take it down; which I did very carefully to avoid injuries ;-) Security was not amused: when the kite flew about 2  minutes I was asked to take it down; which I did very carefully to avoid injuries ;-)
  
 B.t.w. I am very satisfied with the PFK (the kite I used: Paul's Fishing Kite, bought at [[http://​www.kapshop.nl]]((Kapshop is a good supplier of KAP related equipment in The Netherlands. I am in no way related to it))). It is very easy (read quick) to launch, and has proven to be very reliable. I wish they had a '​stealth'​ model made of transparent fabric... B.t.w.

-Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument located in the English county of Wiltshireabout 3.2 kilometres (2.0 mi) west of Amesbury ​and 13 kilometres (8.1 mi) north of Salisbury+Stonehenge is surely Britain'​s greatest national iconsymbolizing mystery, power and enduranceIts original purpose is unclear to us, but some have speculated that it was a temple made for the worship ​of ancient earth deities. It has been called an astronomical observatory for marking significant events on the prehistoric calendar.
  
-Stonehenge is composed ​of earthworks surrounding a circular setting of large standing stonesIt is at the centre of the most dense complex of Neolithic ​and Bronze Age monuments in England, including several hundred burial mounds.+While we can't say with any degree ​of certainty what it was for, we can say that it wasn't constructed for any casual purposeOnly something very important to the ancients would have been worth the effort ​and investment that it took to construct Stonehenge.
  
-Archaeologists had believed that the iconic stone monument ​was erected around 2500 BC+The Construction of the Henge was an impressive engineering feat, requiring commitment, time and vast amounts of manual labour. In its first phase, Stonehenge was a large earthwork; a bank and ditch arrangement called a henge, constructed approximately 5,000 years ago. It is believed that the ditch was dug with tools made from the antlers of red deer and, possibly, wood. The underlying chalk was loosened with picks and shovelled with the shoulder blades of cattle. It was then loaded into baskets and carried away. Modern experiments have shown that these tools were more than equal to the great task of earth digging and moving.
