Edwards AFB has a copy in their library..
That's where my photocopied sections came from.
I think that this legitimately falls in the "hard to get" category for
which libraries are allowed to legally make photocopies. There's a

can't set up as the Jim Lux Research Library, and go to town copying
everything for my friends).
