Scorpion by gkemp
Last night, I was watching the new season premier of "Scorpion", in the U.S.. Much of the action took place in front of and in a hanger of some sort. Outside was a glider trailer and inside what I was sure was a BG-12. Any idea where this was and if I am correct on the glider type? gkemp

ASW19 Inner Tube by [email protected]
I'm looking to buy a spare inner tube for my 19 but I don't have the tube handy to take measurements. I know it's a 500 x 5 with a 90 degree bend in the valve stem but I don't know if I need a long valve stem or a short valve stem. Any assistance is appreciated! Thanks in advance.

Glider Import by NZAviator
Hi, I was wondering if anybody has had experience exporting a glider out of Germany or Hungry and whether I am able to recover any VAT from the purchase price. As it stands the cost of these gliders seems to be a little high so wondered if there is something I am missing with tax recovery etc?
