Wingcarts for a Kestrel? by BruceGreeff
Hi All African problem. The wing carts have been stolen from the trailer for their scrap metal value... I have a Slingsby T59D series 1. Does anyone have any idea where I might get drawings, or obtain a second hand pair, before I start trying to reverse engineer and bodge something together.

Runway lights and wingspans by Bret Hess
What rules of thumb for min width do you use when choosing runways to avoid lights for 15m and 18m ships? Crosswinds? Are the lights at a standard distance from the asphalt in the US? Do any of you hang your wings over the lights?
