usenet vs. private walled-gardens (was New European GA forum) by Fritz Wuehler[_13_]

General Aviation Dead? by Quaalude
"I look with sadness on the Cessna with bees nests in its air vents, or the Mooney sitting on its rims with critters running in and out of it, and the Cessna 150, faded and gutted like a fish. I ask myself, how did it get to this? How could someone let their plane īdie° this...

L-18 Birddog aerobatics? by Marten Kemp
So, writing a story where a bunch of young college-age women discover some crated L-19s in a corner of a hangar. I'm planning that they assemble them under the watchful eye of a semi-retired pilot and A&P who can sign off on the FAA paperwork. Once the airplanes are assembled and flying, then...
