NASM[edit]

NASM's summary identifies only 6 built, not 7 : http://www.nasm.si.edu/collections/artifact.cfm?id=A19731120000 ....LanceBarber (talk) 18:47, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

Said's Soaring ref and the Sailplane Directory say seven were built vs the National Air and Space Museum website, which says six. The FAA registry shows five still on the register today. A check of the individual serial numbers from the FAA registery turns up serial numbers 80, 81, 82, 83 and 84. Number 80 is the sole one in the Experimental-Research and Development category, so it was probably the prototype. Other than that it is hard to tell who is right. Perhaps we should just indicate that "sources disagree". - Ahunt (talk) 21:54, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
