Duct Tape Heals All Wounds

Bear attack survivor saved by Duct Tape?

Here is the email:


Bear attack 2009

Apparently a bear attacked his plane while parked in a remote field up here in AK.

He had not cleaned out the inside after a long fishing trip and the bear smelled it.

He 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.

Gutsy to say the least.  In Alaska duct tape rules!

    I wiould be interested in knowing the location. I sent this to my son in Bethel. He manages Lynden Air Cargo at the airport there and may know the pilot if local or nearby.
    Thx, JC

  2. JC,

    I would love to hear some more details. Let us know what you hear from your son.

    You misunderstand…I need to know the location in order to ascertain whether my son may know or be able to find out the particulars of the case. He sometimes sends background info on cases arising out of Bethel, but this one I don’t know about and he hasn’t responded yet.
