I traced it through my local library (Redcliffe, Queensland, Australia) who got it in for me from our state library (Brisbane). Keep looking as it's a great book, full of coordinates...

Refinishing gelcoat by tango4
It struck me the other day that the materials used to cover R/C models these days could be used to 'refinish' ships on which the gelcoat had deteriorated. We are already 'happy' to stick .5m wide pieces of orange tape to the surfaces of gliders and do so with impunity. Solarfilm ( a trade name ) ...

NMAC/Proximity Anecdotes? by Jim Kellett
For inclusion as examples in various local safety seminars, I've started collecting credible anecdotal reports of NMACs (loosely defined) between gliders and other aircraft. I'm particularly interested in incidents or near-incidents with airliners or other "heavies". I have four such anecdotes...

Clarification - Does everyone teach this way? by Dancebert
I looked at my original post and saw ample room for misinterpretation because of what I left out and how poorly I explained that which I did include. I'd like to clarify two points. The first is that I wasn't criticizing any of the instructors. I was expressing frustation at what I assumed to be...

Looking for an L-23 tailwheel by Alex Zobell
My club is in a bit of a bind right now. Our tailwheel for our Super Blanik is falling apart. We need a new one, but Blanik quoted us $200 for a replacement. It's the tailwheel that goes with the free castoring fork. I was curious if anybody knew of any wrecked L-23's out there that might have...
