The Tilbury Flash is located in the McLean County Museum of History in Bloomington, IL. It was restored approximately 20 years ago by EAA Chapter 129. Among other items, the museum has the original plans for the airplane. It had a very small fuel tank, and flying it to races was problematic since it had a short range and required frequent fuel stops.
