  2. The Flightliner wasn’t produced after 1963, and was never produced at the same time as the Spaceliner. The Flightliner was the top of the line tank bike until ’63. The Spaceliner took over that position when it was introduced in 1964 and the Flightliner was phased out (Spaceliners were produced between 1964-1968).
