    The photo on this page for 42-30320 is actually a photo of Coy Decoy II, 42-30639. A close look at the nose art shows the capital I’s on either side of the young woman.

      Thank you! I did not see that.
      I replace the photo with new one. On this, no nose art is visible. But serial number on tail.
