Cobra trailer tongue. by Bryce Sammeter
I know its a snowballs chance in hell, but I'd be doing myself a disservice by not at least asking. Does anyone have a damaged cobra trailer with a good usuable tongue laying around? Bryce 480-760-5610

Case Reference No 1X/290/I9 by PSD
Dear Dr Panigrahi, Kindly **** off and die. Slowly and painfully, or quick and dirty, we really don't care. Just do it. We have enough on you to put you into an asylum for the rest of your days.

Undershoot Vs. Overshoot airport landing accidents by [email protected]
I always assumed that there are more overshoot airport accidents than undershoot ones. That is mainly due to our general knowledge that it's better to be too high than not high enough. Am I correct here ? Dan

I noticed the Ventus 3 took 3 of the top 5 in the 18 meter class. Looks like to me they have come up with a very fine ship. I haven't seen one in person yet, look forward to that day.

Flarm with External display by [email protected]
I have a portable FLARM that I may need to install in a loaner glider. Installation will be awkward but could be much better if I use an external display that I have surplus from my brick installs. Has any one done this and can you advise how it worked out? Thanks UH
