Delta Wing Kites and Gliders Phoenix Streak
 
DeltaWing-Streak
 
The 1982 Phoenix Streak was a revolutionary design for Bill Bennett Kites. It featured a very wide nose angle, floating "trunc" tips, and a high percentage of double surface. The most unique feature was that the bottom surface was not sewn to the top surface at the rear. Instead, it "floated", and was only attached to the upper surface by means of the lower ribs being inserted through webbing loops on the top surface. Removing the lower ribs allowed the entire bottom surface to separate.
