On May 16, 1987, Troy Vickstrom decided
to measure the speed of his maneuverable kite across the
beach in Lincoln City, Oregon. The kites speed of 108 miles
per hour was measured using a police radar gun.
Afterwards, the police issued a citation for exceeding the
maximum speed in an area with a posted speed of 20 mph.
(The ticket was a joke.) How can you measure the speed of
a moving kite?
You Can Measure The Speed By Determining The Wind Speed And How Heavy The Kite Is.
