I was sent a picture found at 'aircraftslides' while c/n 585 was with the 7th ACS at Ramstein AFB in '67.

I will open it in the queue at top of page

It was put up for sale in '14 for $160K by Andrew Grendahl, the price was reduced in '19 to $118K and it appears to still be for sale by Marvin Grendahl
