Thanks, jky

I knew someone would come up with the goods
"By maintaining a constant speed of 15 knots the engine’s performance could have been reduced by up to 20 per cent. The fuel saving, depending on the flying time of the kite, was adding up from 1,5 to 2 tons a day" - that is certainly worth messing about with a kite for !
