YUMMY!!!!!!!!:puke: I'm sure the crew already scooped it up, and now US Air Express has on-board catering!!!:beer:
i can tell that the roadrunner is breathing a HUGE sigh of relief tonight. at least now he can get a decent night's sleep.
the chief pilot and director of ops I believe it was took a coyote out in hot springs AR a few years ago... air bigmess always manages to take out 3 or 4 deer per year as well.
Anyone ever see that picture of the King Air that hit a deer with the #2 engine? It had a nice finish to the side of the fuse after that...
