Wanted : Gibson Girl box kite

Post by Steve Laport » Thu, 01 Nov 2001 19:16:35


I'm looking for a Gibson Girl box kite, in good condition.
Commonly known as a rescue kite, they are generally
yellow in color with an aluminum frame.
    I have a friend who was flying one  that belonged to her father when she
was 13 in England & caught it in a tree.
Only to return with him the next morning to retrieve it &
find it gone. Now 25 years she'd like to give one back as a surprise. After
hearing her story I mentioned that some are still around & she got all
e***d.
If you know of one please contact me with information.
          Thanks !
