A funny man with an aeroplane in Panama

This is a bad quality photo but I wanted to post it up because it is so weird. I took this in Bocas Del Torro in Panama. This man had a model aeroplane with lights, propellers and wheels that was attached to a length of string and he would walk up and down the main road with it for hours. It took a while to really understand what he was doing, at fist I just thought it was a bit odd but maybe he was proud of his model plane.

It turns out that he was walking up and down the street waiting for the right gust of wind. When it came along he ran along the road dragging the plane behind him until the plane took off and flew about 20-30 feet up in the air. Of course, it didn't stay up for very long but it obviously made him quite happy.
