[Avionics Today 08-10-2016] West Star Aviation is performing a major repair on a Gulfstream G200 aircraft at their new Chattanooga, Tennessee location after a foreign object struck it.

The aircraft is an Atlanta-based G200; the foreign object struck the fuselage above the window line on the left side between the fourth and fifth windows leaving a crease in the skin. West Star will replace the entire skin using factory drawings and Gulfstream engineering support after attempting to cold work the crease.
