Bear attack...

Bear attack 2009 - Remote Alaska air strip on a fishing trip.
Apparently a bear attacked his plane while parked in a remote field up there in AK. The pilot had not cleaned out the inside after a long fishing trip and the bear smelled it.

The pilot/owner had 2 new tires, 3 cases of Duct Tape, and several rolls of cellophane delivered. Then went about repairing the plane so he could fly it home.

I'm NOT getting on that plane!

Good thing the bear wasn't really hungry, or he would've eaten the plane instead of just chewing it up.

I heard that duct tape was specifically invented for the repair of torn fabric on the old planes. That looks like a real nice fix-up job.

It's high speed tape, they use it on NASCAR race cars running over 175mph.

Some day I'll have to tell you about the time I put some in my hair just to see if it would stick...ohhhhh, it did!

And I'll tell you about the time I drained a transaxle full of gear oil onto my head. That was back when I had hair. I shampooed for two days and it still stunk.
