WEB LINKS

There are a number of web pages with information about the TAM project and Maynard Hill.  Here is a sampling:

This article contains accurate information.

Wikipedia

We consider Wikipedia an excellent concept, since provides an opportunity for  knowledgeable people to create accurate entries.  Since Wikipedia entries can be edited by virtually anyone, errors are also possible.  Eventually, one hopes that the "truth will out."

The Wikipedia entry for TAM-5 has been comical at times, with grossly inaccurate statements.  For awhile, the entry claimed that TAM-5 was powered by a hybrid system and flew above 10,000 feet!.

Your webmaster at one point provided accurate information, which was soon removed.
