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 
bunch of restrictions which I don't remember for this process (e.g. I 
can't set up as the Jim Lux Research Library, and go to town copying 
everything for my friends).
