My favorite airplane, and the last currently operational Cessna 152 at my airport, has been "squawked" - taken off the flight line due to a maintenance issue. Now, the other 152 is down for scheduled maintenance - usually an engine teardown and thorough inspection (which is a good thing). But it won't be available for many weeks. The sad part is that the weather is PERFECT for flying today.
I'm a little worried, because the abrupt nature of the extended maintenance downtime most likely means one of two things:
1. A serious problem with the engine was discovered. The ticking time-bomb type.
2. Some buck-toothed, knock-kneed, corn fed goat roper slammed the poor thing down on the runway and broke something important. My guess is #2, but we'll see.
So, I'm grounded for now. Updates to follow of course!
