A bear of an airplane

Saturday, October 15th, 2011

Jim Weibe, CEO of Belite Enterprises, is just busting with pride over his appearance on the television show MythBusters. Seems the public showed a strong interest in aviation recently over a story that an aircraft, clawed by a bear in Alaska, was repaired with tape and safely flown home. Letters to the television show proved there are mostly doubters out there who don’t think that took place. The Belite ultralight was clawed into shreds, and then repaired. It flew! He even got to buzz the stars of the show as they stood on the runway. Let’s see, that will be $500 for violation of FAA rules about getting a haircut with a propeller.
