<div class="IPBDescription">Is there anything it can't do?</div>During a private “fly-in” fishing excursion in the Alaskan wilderness, the chartered pilot and fishermen
left a cooler-box of fish and bait inside the plane. A bear smelled it and 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 plastic sheets. Plane truth – they patched the plane together, and flew it home!

    First of all, if they had beer in the plain i would have burt the plane to the ground, not rip it apart!

    I bet it sealed up nicely, but that is still a temporary fix

    albeit a good one

    just fyi, the pictures are copyrighted, atleast according to that story.

    Also, duct tape can repair anything indeed, but even duct taping every US citizen to their roof is, albeit an awesome fix to US economy, just temporary. It can even repair dividing by 0!

    Mythbusters has taught me that there is <i>very little</i> duct tape can't do, I'm quite prepared to believe it would hold a plane together. They built a working <i>cannon</i> out of the stuff.

    Well, it's only <b>repaired</b> with duct tape, but it's close enough.
