Not sure what I hit the other day but it did a number on the blade tip cap on my bird! Lucky for me my boys fixed it up for me and I continued the mission without and delay. Great maintainers around here!

LOL...I was going to suggest that you check your hat for scuff marks but I see that was your first thought.

Thanks for your service. Get home soon.

Thats not good, just some paint scuff. Can they repaint it there?

Looks like the rotor is ready for the "Miracle of Duct Tape". Just be sure and get the good stuff!

Looks like FOD to me.

Stay warm and safe. See you soon at SEFF.

15 days left? I'd say just fly a desk but I don't think that's your nature. I know you'll be up to your kiester in packing for Rucker when you get back but stay in touch with all of us.

Hey folks, whatever it was that hit the blade took the outter "skin" off of it (the black part). It didnt damage the fiberglass in the tip cap, but still had to replace it. Our sheetmetal/fiberglass guys will have it fixed in no time. Until then, we just slapped a new one on and continued mission.

As for me, well, I had about 20 days left... but, now I'll be here an extra week. So, back up to about 30 days till I depart now.
