Why You Should Always Carry Duct Tape

We’ve occasionally expounded on the essential perfection of duct tape (see “In Search Of Better Duct Tape“), but even we were surprised to read that one can reassemble Alaskan bush planes that are partially eaten by grizzly bears with the stuff.
Turns out an Alaskan pilot did a pretty nice job of putting his fuselage and tail section back together via a liberal application of the miracle product. It might be easier to clean out the plane before dropping into bear country though; even duct tape can get mighty expensive in those quantities.
