I notice Mike McCants has just posted elements for 97-18A and B. I
assume this is the recent PegasusXL launch of Minisat one off the
spanish coast. The highly retrograde orbit is interesting. 
I assume the energy penalty for an air launch into retrograde orbit is
somewhat smaller and of course they had to launch over the atlantic to
the west.
I will be looking for the booster with Gene R and the others
attached(window in early may for this location)  :-)
