Hi all,

anyone know anything about the Great Lakes plane that hit a deer on the runway? Any pictures? We just had one of the college's planes hit a deer on a runway in Greenville. Not pretty.

Don't imagine it was (pretty) - luckily in forty years of aviating, the only critters I've hit were rather smallish birds. Having said that, at 200 mph, a small bird that hits the windscreen can potentially leave a large pile in one's shorts...

Cheers...........Tony
