So the story goes...

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!!!

I definitely, would not like to argue with the bear. :shock:

That was one Pi**ed Off Bear. The pilot did a good job of patching it up. I have a friend that took his ATV up hunting early last fall. While he was hunting a Bear stopped by his ATV! When he got back the seat was torn to He**. :mad:

Gotta love duct tape. In the Army it's called 100 mile an hr. tape. We used it on everything. I'd fly in that plane without hesitation. I've also heard that Gorilla tape is pretty good stuff too.

Yep, sure is. It's holding some things on my Escape. :yes:

Okay okay, it's just a few wires for the lights on my brush rack, but actually that stuff has held those excess wire bundles up under the light mounting bar better than other things I've tried.
