View Full Version : The many uses of duct tape

This was on my FZ1 board.


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!

Here is my duct tape repair in Ohio last year. Thanks to Gasman for suppling the tape. I thought I would jazz it up with a new racing stripe too.

I think I would have called Geico..

That's pretty ballsy to fly that.. MacGyver indeed - he should have put some tinfoil and bubblegum for good measure..

That is legendary like Twisty using safety wire on his rear axle bolt when he lost the castle nut and then raced the bike like that..
