Flew from KGED after picking up my airplane from some maintenance. Departing RWY 22, I saw a HERD of deer (about 12) running across the approach end of RWY 4. I also saw flocks of black birds there, and had seen many geese in the past week as well.

Since it was 65 degrees in February (really?), the bugs were also out and all over my windscreen.

Coming back to KGED after an aborted departure, I watched for those deer, and for other critters. Parking at Georgetown Aero, I observed the yellow and white Archer II with a very large dent in its wing. I’m sure this is the result of a collision with a geese that chuck has told me about over the weekend. Heads up everyone.

Fully retired now, unless something interesting comes along. I’ve enjoyed a lucrative career as an Electrical Engineer, Certified Software Solutions Developer, and Project Manager. An excellent and fun career that I’m very proud of. I began flying commercially in Dash-8 aircraft for Piedmont Airlines, and moved on to instruct in the Gulfstream 280; WestWind; and Astra jet aircraft. I’ve also been blessed with a type rating in the B-25 bomber in a fortunate turn of events. My wife, Beverly, and I currently own and operate a beautifully restored PA30 Twin Comanche, which we use to explore the CONUS.
