    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

    Interesting story and pics Dayton. I never thought a bear could do that much damage to a plane. Must have been real hungry. Second I never would have guessed the pilot would have been able to fix and fly the plane out of there, especially with duct tape. I agree the best duct tape story in history.
