That's the first time I've seen it as well. It's not even on Dave Becker's database. C/n 30-733

She's been around since 1965 - wonder where she's been hiding

Well Ray .. if you have not seen it, and I have not seen it.. and Dave did not have a pic of it ... it really is a mystery as to where its been hiding
