Original Dunford Flying Machine available here!!!

The original two line 'steerable kite' designed by squadron leader Don Dunford - is a piece of kiting history. Whether you want to experience the feel of the original, re-kindle old memories, pass on your enthusiasm and knowledge to the next generation or own a piece of memorabilia, this is for you.

These kites are stock we made back in the day (1970's / 1980's), using wooden spars and fabric sail. Having been stored in the cool and dark they are still in good condition although they are a little musty. They are repacked into clean sleeves before sale.

Wingspan: 41
Colour: Orange

Enjoy!

The Dunford Flying Machine is the ultimate kite! Thrilled to get a companion to my thirty-year old original, battered but still flying!

Dunford Flying Machine Kite 41''

Submitted by: Mr Peter Richards (03/03/2021)

My dad bought a 51" for my younger brother from Don's shop on Hollow Way Cowley Oxford in the mid 70's and well remember attempts to get it airbourne. Many years later after my wife introduced me to kite flying by buying another of Don's design kites on my 40th birthday I dug out the 51" from the loft and managed to fly it first time. I now have a 41" purchased this year and when we are able to go out again I look forward to flying the 51"s little brother. I still have the original and it still flies beautifully so get one while you can you will not regret it.

Response from Cochranes: Hi Peter, Thanks for the lovely review with memories of Don's model shop. Fingers crossed that lockdown will lift as planned and you can get out and fly them together soon.

Dunford Flying Machine Kite 41''

Submitted by: John Houldsworth (27/10/2020)

Got one of these for my 70th birthday after pointing daughter the right way. Brilliant ! Brought back the memories of flying my old one on the hill behind the Clog & Billycock pub in Blackburn after a Sunday session....in the days of the early 70's when they threw you out at 3:00 ! Now teaching grandson (5) how to fly on Lytham seashore. Great wind conditions. Recommended to anyone for therapy in these difficult Covid times. Thanks to Cochranes for keeping the Dunford dream alive.

Response from Cochranes: Hi John, thank you for your review. So pleased the kite is bringing your positive thoughts and I couldn't agree more that getting out in the wind is a great therapy in these difficult times.
