    N Number Owner Registered City & State
    N36CM James Grow Richland, WA
    N833MC Richard Resser Waterford, WI (rumored to have crashed but I could not find any NTSB confirmation of this)
    N156MT Merwyn Taylor Whitewater, WI
    N4654J JB Collins La Poret, TX
    N203G Robert Young Apple Valley, CA
    N80SB Barry Lippert Atwater, CA


    (tried twice to justify and align these columns, the forum software keeps re-editing my re-editinginging)

    This was a nice one. Taken in 2003, Oshkosh.

    Nice lower wing to fuselage fairings, and beautiful finish throughout.

    That one was built by Allen Potts. It took home a Bronze Lindy that year at Oshkosh.

    N79RW is almost complete , all paint is done ready to hang the wings . Very nice plane , has two sister ships N19HH and N 19PG , all painted alike . Check them out on Ormond Aircraft Brokers web site .
    I don't think Rob Wyder is a member , but Marqurtflyer ( Doug Shinn N19PG) is .

    N1220U I have a picture of. BTW... that's what this is for. I've been collecting pictures of Marquart MA-5 Chargers. They're all posted in the Photos section.

    I just talked to Barry Lippert. His Charger has been sitting for years with the engine removed.

    What's his "plan" on it? How many chargers do you think we're built and how many are left? Anyone still building ?

    When I talked to Barry Lippert this morning, it sounded like he might be putting it up for sale in the near future. He's in his 80's and doesn't want it to become a problem for his kids to sell once he's gone.

    I have run into probably around 6 people building (or rebuilding) Chargers. It's hard to say how many were built, but it looks like around 50 (give or take) are flying. Mostly in the US, and a few in Canada, UK, & Germany. Over the past few years I have collected photos of most of the Chargers that are or ever were flying. Those pics are posted in the "Photos" section here on biplaneforum.com

    This is my dad's plane. He built it and still has it. The yellow plane is a Rose Parakeet which he also built.

    Did Merwyn also build a beautiful Hatz with a Warner radial engine on it ?

    No one ever called him Merwyn except his mother. If you find him setting up communications at the EAA fly-in, which he still does, call him Mert. He joined the EAA in the early 1950's and still belongs to the same Beloit chapter. http://eaachap60.tripod.com/id54.htm

    I remember riding in a wagon around one of the first EAA fly-in's in Rockford. He designed and built a "Topper" and "Tattor-bug." Then went on to build a "Davis" and the two bi-planes shown in the pictures.

    He also restored my grandfathers 1953 Luscomb, which he still owns.

    If you would like more pictures, please let me know.

    Neat airplanes. Would like to see more of them, especially the Parakeet.

    Would like to see more pictures of the Parakeet and the other Parakeet(red) from that area. I remember the two early airplanes from Sport Aviation.
