Fisherman fixes his plane with duck tape after bear attacked it

From the article:

A fisherman chartered a small plane to fly into the Alaskan backcountry for some fishing. The fisherman unwisely left fresh bait in the plane, which attracted a bear–this being bear country and all–and the animal then tore the airplane apart. The image you see above is the trashed plane.

But the charter pilot supposedly was a bad-ass. And like a bad-ass he wouldn’t just let a bear get away with tearing up his airplane. No, this bad-ass–who must be a geek–called another pilot to ferry in new tires, sheet plastic, and three cases of duct tape.

The pilot applied the materials, flew the thing home, and arrived safely.

Original site.

This just shows why you should always have a roll of duck tape (550 paracord should also be a given) with you, were ever you go.

You might just need them.

WOG out.

    Now that’s what I call resourceful! Hope he didn’t have long to fly.
