Great Pumpkin [P3D] Launch

What a fitting tribute to the passing of Charles Schulz in February and the
50th anniversary of his strip of having the P3D launch on Halloween .... did
you notice the orange tint of the P3D protective mylar in Wilfried
Gladisch's photo ?!  [ "sure looks like a great pumpkin, Linus" ]



and still time to add to calender of events !
