Last Minute Duct Tape Touch Ups Before Take Off?

posted: June 2, 2015


Imagine looking out of your teeny tiny airplane window and seeing this before take off!

My reaction would either:
1. Get me thrown off of the aircraft for causing mass panic
2. Cause my heart to immediately stop beating (sudden death)

Turns out it was not duct tape, but speed tape.  And was only being used as a cosmetic fix, not to secure the giant front cover thingy to the engine.

Thanks makes us feel soooo much better.
