  The story that I heard (Stan Veit's book?) was that it was shipped via
REA (Railway Express Agancy?) and was in transit when the REA employees
went on strike. Apparently the strike was the death knell of REA so the
package was never delivered. Also when REA went under, everything was
dumped instead of being shipped to a dead letter office. My guess is that
THE original Altair ended up in a scrap yard somewhere between New Mexico
and NYC.
