Who was the photographer?[edit]

The cited reference names the photographer (in some detail) as "Charles Traub". However I've recently read another reference that names him as "Chuck Wynn". It's not the most accurate ref I've ever read, so I don't necessarily trust it, but can anyone clear this up? Chuck/Charles is just reporting variation, but did he ever go by the name "Wynn" ? Is that some other identifiable person? Andy Dingley (talk) 15:50, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

wheelbase vs track[edit]

The statement "Triplex's lack of stability, possibly caused by its short wheelbase relative to its wide track." is backward. The narrow track (width) VS wheelbase (length) is obvious in the photos and would contribute to a susceptibility to roll. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.195.201.93 (talk) 17:00, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

"Short wheelbase" is obvioulsy wrong. Deleted, as uncited speculation. TREKphiler any time you're ready, Uhura 03:27, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

location[edit]

After the crash what happened to the White Triplex, is it preserved somewhere?AT Kunene (talk) 11:45, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

Not AFAIK. I suspect it was simply broken up for scrap. There are several photos of the wreckage and not much looks usable afterwards. Andy Dingley (talk) 11:52, 29 May 2012 (UTC)
