Jim and his entire team of builders were extremely special people! It would have been amazing to watch what they recreated had Jim not been lost. I can't directly remember what plane they had in mind next but, they were planning on recreating the most rare, or completely extinct types... This was a tragedy in many more ways than one! Glad you captured this moment in Jim's life Jason!
