Whisper Jets

So while up in WA this summer, I had the chance to go for a ride in an S55. I had never even heard about the whisper jet birds before then. Anyway, I was curious as to what happened to them? From what I understand there were up to 5 built and I know Papillon flew some, if not all, of them.

 

So the last evidence I can see they were flying was around 2001 or 2002. Where did they go from there? Has anyone seen one in the bone yard or flying around?

The first one became a pile of rubble. Papillon had two I think. If you see what you think is a 55, but it has 5 blades instead of 3, then its a Whisper model....
