Chicago
Hook & Ladder
Hook & Ladder In the late summer of 1985 a stack of 153 Flexifoil Stackers was successfully flown from a ground rig supported by two fire trucks. Affectionately known as the Chicago Hook & Ladder stack, it was a great achievement on the part of the Chicago Skyliners Kite Group who provided many of the kites. Under the guidance of Ray Merry and Andrew Jones, the stack rose into the air to a vertical height of 1,000 feet. The flight only being terminated by the failure of the flying line. It was pulled apart by the huge forces!
