04/30/2007. Remarks by Johan Visschedijk: "This two-seat aircraft was designed by Ed Marquart in late-sixties and sets of prints were marketed to home-builders. One of the first buyers was Daniel Fielder, Ed and Daniel together built the first MA-5 Charger that made its maiden flight in 1971. It changed hands several times and was deregistered on April 16, 2001, as being destroyed.
Ed sold about 500 sets of prints and welded 39 airframes, at least 45 MA-5 Charger's are still on the FAA Registry."
