1960 US team photos? by Tony[_7_]
Hey all - in reviewing Paul Schweizer's "Soaring Through the 20th Century", I realize there are no photos of the gliders being loaded or unloaded from the MATS aircraft, which I thought I had seen somewhere. Anyone have any leads? I suspect it was a C-124...talk about subsidies!

ClearNav2 compatibility? by Phoenix
I'm installing a ClearNav2 and already have a Cambridge LNav / GPSnav w/Cambridge vario. Is there any reason to keep the Cambridge combo in the panel? Anything it can do that the CN2 can't? Should I just install hole covers and try to sell the Cambridge combo?
