Fishing with Aviation Objects, Redux

AVweb's NewsWire for October 25, 1999 included the news item below about a Russian serviceman nabbed by local police with a curious collection of aviation-related items, including a flight data recorder tape and an "aviation cannon." We offered an AVweb mug to the reader with the best guess as to how these items fit into the soldier's plans to "stun fish" and many readers responded. In fact, many of you outdid yourselves. Here's the best of the entries we received and, at the bottom, the entry that won the AVweb coffee mug.
