It's a little obscure, but the construct (P{PZ}) is at Flybase:

There are one or two bits in the middle not sequenced, but almost all of
it is there. Thanks to Jay Rehm at the genome project for pointing me to

While we're on the subject, the P{lacW} enhancer trap (from Bier et al in
their 1989 G&D paper, and used in several screens including those of the
Jan & Scott labs) is also at flybase at:
