The show aired last night.  Viewers responded by looking us up on the web and it crashed our website!  Now it’s back up.

  1. I saw the photos of the Cub in Alaska and knew duct tape could do it. You just have to know where to fold it over the leading edges so the wind won't tear it off in flight!!We used (400 mile per hour) duct tape to tape over the gun ports on our fighters to keep out bugs and debris.Great stuff, sorry I missed the episode.
