Parafoils were a special type of kite capable of lifting around 200 to 500 pounds in the air. It looked like a parachute but had little pockets in the back to let the wind in.

Why on Earth would you wanna lift something 200 - 500 pounds into the air...with a kite, no less =/ Also, I don't remember this one.

Sounds very dangerous, but most of our toys were back then...lawn darts anyone? This is also the reason out generation is much tougher than nowadays.
