This kite was trying to reach for the stars but unfortunately ended up being a hindrance to air traffic control instead.
Victoria Police responded to a call in Esquimalt this afternoon about a high-flying kite that was interfering with inbound air traffic headed for inner harbour.
The kite was enjoying the clear weather today at about 1,000 ft in the sky when it was brought back down to earth.
Today, we attended for the report of a kite being flown over #esquimalt that was causing a hazardous situation for the incoming air traffic to the inner harbour. Air traffic was re-routed around the area. The kite was approx. 1000 ft in the air. Our investigation is ongoing #yyj

Last year Transport Canada considered installing “no drone” signs around inner harbour to ward of recreational drone operators in the area.
Should there be something similar for kite-flyers as well?
