That's really cool I've read a few articles and seen some concept pictures but it's great to see this implemented. Did she say 600 m? I assume he meant sq m, but thes pretty effin huge.

I wonder if spleene is developing a light wind cargo door....

How long does the kite last??? Cost effectiveness compared to price and maint. Of soo much fabric??? Don't get me wrong I love this idea and can they make it produce power too??? But seems like a kite like that would have to be made out of some tough stuff???? Must be expensive to handle long term???

You can buy lots of material if its saving 10k lbs of fuel a day. Nice use of the wind.
