Does anyone know the current status of this glider? The last time I saw it was in the early 80's hanging in one of the rafter's of a building at the Garber facility. Is it still there? Is there a plan to display it?

Thanks...

It is still at Garber.

The WACO that towed it across country also exists in private hands (I had opportunity to talk the guy who restored it).

Here's a picture of the glider a friend of mine took around 1990. It definitely needs some work (more recent internet pictures show the fabric in worse condition) but its a neat piece of history.
