Went up to the airport to do some flying and found out in the last 3 weeks things where busy, and not in a good way.


This was a cessna that Hit a deer about 3 weeks ago, Took out the front nose gear and made for a quick stop. every one was ok . . . well not the deer. . . total bill to fix about $80,000. They where picking up the plane that day and taking out to a airport with the needed repair shop.

Now for #2

Taz, 80 grand to fix? I hope he or she had good insurance! Those are some interesting shots, but sad!

Interesting shots - very interesting about the plane hitting the deer. I never would have thought about that (cars, yes; but an airplane!?) and the $80,000 is a huge repair bill. Wow!
