Anyone know if its still in the salvage area odd that it would be marked 701 all other Peru AF helios were 1570 to 1577

As always any further information or pictures would be greatly appreciated.

I mentioned in an earlier post that it is difficult to access facebook without being a member, well it is getting harder when you search now after less than a minute the entire page is covered with an application. It is improving my computer skills in a way, I may have to eventually learn how to hack the pages for information.

While figuring out how to search facebook pages without being a member (there are still a couple back doors) I discovered this picture. I was able to figure out this picture of c/n 1418, as OB-M-942 was taken while it was with Southern Peru Copper corp now Toquepala Mine, a couple miles North of Cerro Minas.

If nothing else, the low quality pic shows the paint scheme and it is not the usual 3 color 1400 series paint scheme.

If it is still in the salvage area at Lima-Collique, and hasn't been scrapped for metal it would be nice to have a picture.
