Duct tape plane

Mythbusters tested this!

Quote from: Original eMail
During a private "fly-in" fishing excursion in the Alaskan wilderness, the chartered pilot and fishermen left a cooler and bait in the plane.

A bear smelled it, and 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!

Well, first of all, thats 4-5 layers of duct tape, and it is about the same consitency as the fabric skin. Secondly, he was alaskan, so its kinda in his blood not to die in a plane crash. :D

Darn that's insane. O.o I personally would probably be scared of going in a vehicle that is damaged like that.
In case you are wondering where I went, I am still regularly active in the TI community and am even making new TI-84 Plus CE games. However, I left Omnimaga back in March 2015 for various reasons explained here and there. I might come back one day, depending of certain circumstances, but my new TI community home (despite me being Omnimaga founder in 2001) is now CodeWalrus ( https://codewalr.us ). Sorry for the inconveniences.

That is amazing. Duct tape really does hold the universe together.
