A recent post triggered some nostalgia about my flying days. I realized that I had not yet seen any pilots here--much less flying stories.
One of my favorites:
One of our club members taxied a Cessna 150 into a post at a remote airport--putting a "dent" in the wing about the size of a basketball. Some suggested it would still fly, but--mindful of our liability---we dispatched our mechanic to deal with it.
Several of were gathered at the airport when he returned--he had used several rolls of duct tape to fashion a new leading edge over the dent. He non-chalantly stated that it still needed a lot of rudder to keep it flying straight.
He went on to effect a more permanent repair---and I think the club member got some new glasses.....
