Home Balloon Building
Balloon Building
This section contains details of the home built balloon ands airship projects that I have undertaken. Most of the balloons that I have built have been built specifically for breaking records, an area in which I have had moderate success.
I really enjoy the process of designing and building a balloon because you learn so much about how they are put together (literally), the structure and the design weak points of some commercial models.
 

About Aviation

The most frequent last words I have heard on cockpit voice-recorder tapes are, 'Oh Shit,' said with about that much emotion. There's no panic, no scream, it's a sort of resignation: we've done everything we can, I can't think of anything else to do and this is it.
