One Schempp-Hirth Technical Note and AD that had been overlooked in the US concerns a critical safety issue of the highest order! If your glider is among the serial numbers 21, 23, 27, 30, 32,-34, 36-52, 54-120, then, if you have not already done so, inspect the lower bearing in the elevator for compliance with the following technical note. Do it before you fly again!
