Did a bear tear your airplane to bits in a remote part of Alaska? No problem - we can fix that with a little duct tape. Army Paratrooper forum user Iz_NorthPole explains:
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!
