Join us to Fly Kites at RAF Waddington, Lincoln Saturday 19th March, 1-3pm
RAF Waddington is Britain’s drone centre from where armed drones were operated over Afghanistan and are currently flying over Iraq and Syria.( travel details below)
Make a kite.
Instruction can be downloaded here
Fly Kites Not Drones is a campaign which came from young people in Afghanistan who told us that the threat of armed drones were now making the beautiful blue skies a fearful sight for Afghan children. Drones work best on clear days where clouds do not obscure the cameras fitted on them, clear days are also considered perfect for kite flying.
