  1. It is with great sadness that I am relaying that we lost Al Ball this week. I understand that Brad, his son, will be putting together a memorial sometime in mid-January. Al was our go-to for Kinner information, parts, how-tos, and restoration for as long as I can remember. Although I have only had my Ryan since 1983, I knew Al since 1980. Any trip to Santa Paula required a stop-in at his hangar, a trip for lunch or at least a tall ice tea, a lot of mutual abuse in fun and a general sharing of life’s happenings. He will be greatly missed, We are very fortunate that he passed his Kinner knowledge on to Brad years ago. Happy Landings, Al. lynne
