 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.

 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 purpose. Only something very important to the ancients would have been worth the effort and investment that it took to construct Stonehenge. 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 purpose.

-Construction of the Henge +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.
