Comment:
The Prue IIA first flew in 1964, differing from the original Prue II by having a T-tail, fixed gear and a shorter, lighter, 2 piece wing resulting in an empty weight approximately two hundred pounds less. The IIA held the world multi-place out-and-return record (590,5 km./ 366.88 miles) for six months in 1967 and again, of 684.5 km. / 425.3 miles in 1972. The only IIA belongs to the National Soaring Museum.
