The Olympian hung in a hanger at Quonset Point Naval Air Station, Rhode Island for some years after the trials and the historic flight on April 21st 1976 at 8:16 am.

Today all that remains is the tail section (click to view then select Back to return).

We have great hopes of rebuilding a complete replica of the Olympian for an upcoming international documentary.
