It has been said before, that the people who love to build, are not neccessarily the same people who love to fly. Within the EAA or LAA one hears of individuals who are serial constructors, completing one project, and soon selling, to start the next. After an 18 year build, having enjoyed a couple of years flying, one can understand why Jack Bally, at the age of 77, might feel the time is right for the aeroplane to start a new chapter.

Hi All, Propstrike - I Never thought of it like that I just looked at it rather simplistically of the build time and how it would have consumed his life during that time emotionally and the people around him, having said this can't wait to see if he starts another one. I would think that this would just spur him on with the experience of Bally's build and wish him every success with his future plans. Geoff.
