I talked to one of our member last night an I was informed that he had talked to Karl Thun, and the damage has been repaired and the aircraft has been returned to flying status, sometime around 03/07

Also may soon get a current photo to replace this one I have in my photo file.

One of the locals caught N42GT at the fuel pumps back in 2017.

Thanks for photo to replace my missing photo, static thrust. I opened 2017 picture above but we still need a current picture although if it hasn't been repainted maybe not so much.

Of course Doug. N42GT is still in the unpainted state for the time being. One thing you cant see from that photo is it has a green and white starburst pattern on top of the wing.
