This story has been making the rounds for a while…
Best duct tape story ever…During a private fly-in fishing excursion into the Alaskan wilderness, the chartered pilot and fishermen left a cooler with bait in the plane. And a bear smelled it. This is what it did to the plane…
The pilot used his radio and had another pilot bring him two new tires, three cases of duct tape, and a supply of sheet plastic. He then patched the plane together, and FLEW IT HOME!
Duct tape. Never leave home without it…
