Best duct tape story EVER.......

During a private "fly-in" fishing excursion in the Alaskan wilderness,

the chartered pilot and fishermen left a cooler and bait in the plane.

And a bear smelled it. This is what he did to the plane.





The pilot used his radio and had another pilot bring him 2 new tires, 3 cases of duct tape,

and a supply of sheet plastic. He patched the plane together, and FLEW IT HOME !




Duct Tape? Never leave home without it!

Smart man...and I'm a firm believer in having several rolls of duct tape in the home...

Without Cindy having the pictures I believe I would have had a hard believing a man put a shredded plane back together with duct tape and then...flew home in it...

I've seen pipeline pilots (they fly at LOW altitudes) put that stuff on the struts and leading edges of the wings and tail to protect them from bugs and small bird strikes. You can't beat that duct tape.

If to protect from bird strikes....wouldn't it be called "duck tape"? ;-) n/t
