Remark Photographer
160420 / AC-601 (cn A-40) Whilst taxiing at night during a brief visit to NALF Fentress, the starboard prop struck a deer and the animal was thrown through the fuselage and in turn wrote the aircraft off. The scab patch on the fuselage shows the point of impact.

Poor deer.

A visitor from United States posted Mon January 24, 2011:
This airplane was known as "Bambi" for years after it struck the deer. Was frequently used for parts over the years until it was finally regulated into a target for all the MWR paint ball teams using the portion of the airfield for games.
