May 1, 2012, Three Rivers, Mich. Cessna 172M Skyhawk


The airplane hit a deer as the airplane lifted off after a touch-and-go. The CFI continued the takeoff and established the airplane was controllable. The CFI elected to divert to a nearby airport where emergency services were available, and landed without further incident. The right wing strut and right gear mount were bent and the right side of the fuselage was buckled.
