Hi!

Although this is not about an airplane I thought that it was interesting to share this story. It is about a french who broke his car in the desert and transformed it into a motorbike with a handsaw to get back to civilisation.

I do not know if it was easier, after breaking the car, to go back to civilisation by walk or do what Emile Leray did. In any case the story is worth it, it remains a bit that of Leclerc journey across Tchad in where he had to cannibalize his vehicles to get to Lybia.
