The Discovery channel is re-airing the MythBusters Duct Tape Plane episode this Friday, FEBRUARY 1, at 2:00 EST.   (Check your local listings!).  I am publishing some photos from that amazing experience here, several of which I have never shown before.

It was an unforgettable moment in my life.  I enjoyed my time with Grant, Tori and Kari very much -- and also with Eric, Bennie, Duncan and Laura.  Gene came and had fun too.

The plane in question ended up on MythBusters traveling tour.  It was the same plane that won an award at Sun N Fun earlier in the year.  It had started life as a tricycle gear plane and ended as a taildragger covered in duct tape!
