RE: PC: U33C Radiator Fairings

Not true.  Basically only the early 1968 orders for U33C's have the flair.  As an example, EL's 1968 U33C's have them and the 1969 order does not.  Nor does anyone else's build after mid 68.  The U36C did not arrive until 1971.  Although the U36B arrived in 1970.  In addition, the U34CH (which was just a slightly cut back 36C) also arrived in 1970.
