LS-6a Landing Gear Problem by Michael Higgins
My LS-6 gear collapsed and now will not lock down or up. Has any other LS-6 drivers had this happen? What's the fix? I had the glider on the trailer cradle for assembly and lowered the gear. I think the cradle was a little too low and the gear contacted the ground prior to the mechanism locking...

Inside a Compaq 1530 PDA: What's Broken? by Chip Bearden
I've seen it three times this year. There's a problem with the old, faithful 1530. In the process, you take the battery out, then put it back in. Maybe you're replacing the battery (at great cost). Or maybe just resetting the device to start over again. Now it doesn't work. Or doesn't work...

Say Goodbye Lennie by Jeff Dorwart
Lennie, It always saddens me that one of the very few glider pilots chooses to leave the sport. I have been flying gliders since 1975 and have seen many depart for a myriad of reasons. Health, economics, just tired of it, etc, etc. I have personally witnessed a few dings, scrapes and outright...
