Many of you know we have had an empty nest over the winter. 85M had an encounter with a very large deer back in November in Zanesville, OH. (KZVV). The deer came up the loser, but due to the accumulated time on the engine the board decided to install a factory re-manufactured engine, instead of going through the process of an engine inspection. We are planning on 85M returning home sometime in April, and it should be ready to go for this flying season.
