On the 22nd March 2009 (last Sunday), Saberkas Unit Pa' Dris organized a kite flying event at Sibu Town Square Phase 2. The prospect was rather gloomy in the morning and afternoon as it was cloudy and raining. I even remember it was raining at 4.30pm. Lady Luck was smiling that day and the town was blessed with a clear sky just before 5pm
The event supposed to start at 5.30pm but at 5,15pm, most kites were already on the air
The event is also part of their rehearsal to prepare for the unit's 30th anniversary celebration.
This kite is what they called the stunt kite. It has some resemblance of a Stealth fighter. This kite can manoeuvre in any direction and can perform a figure of eight
The highlight should be the train kite. I believe some of these train kites had 200 kites attached in a single string
I heard a kite enthusiat plan to get his name into Malaysian Book of Record by flying the longest train kite, in the region of 300-500 kites
It such a beautiful sight to see so many kites in the air. If I remember correctly, there were at least 3 train kites that evening
