I was in the paint shop, at an airport in regional northern Victoria and saw a Jabiru 230. Apparently, the plane had parked in a paddock overnight and was grazed upon by a horse. The leading edges of the tail and main wings had significant damage down to the glass, through the paint and gel coat. I don’t know the owner, so I haven’t posted photos or named the paint shop. This is the second time I have seen horse damage by horses. When I was training at Lilydale, some years ago, a horse ate the vinyl roof of a rather good Ford LTD.

So, beware the curious horse.

I'll wager ingesting all that paint and gel coat made him a little hoarse.

Perhaps the aircraft owner can now name his aircraft, "Air Horse One"? :cheezy grin:

Actually, the bloke can probably thank his good luck, that he didn't land in a paddock full of goats! He would've come back to the aircraft, and only found a skeletal frame!

 

The story of W.A.'s first aircraft builders is featured in the ABC article below. But the article has left out a huge amount of detail.

 

After the pilot crashed in the scrub near Coolgardie, when the intrepid builders returned to pick it up, they found the wing fabric had been chewed to pieces by feral goats!

 

Flight of the outback daredevils created aviation history

If that is the case, I had better hoof it off to somewhere else

I thought they were great. I was laughing at one of them and nearly fell off my hor chair.
