Duct tape can fix anything.

The tape probably held up just fine for the first dozen trips or more. It's also probably a non critical hole.

BalugaJoe: Duct tape can fix anything.


We actually used a Mountain Dew can and a couple of clothes pins for the patch, duct tape just kept everything nice and tidy. Craftsmanship is important.

The problem was the pilot flying straight into the wind all the time.

It's a fabric membrane which allows quick access to......something. A life raft release handle, for instance.
Sometime the fabric wears out.

Obviously not the work of a NASCAR pit crew......

Use the the grey duct (duck) tape, not the blue painters tape.

Speed tape is made from metal, this was cloth.  Probably just duct tape or something like it.

I don't think that stuff exists.  Can you provide another link?   Because I think everyone just uses duct tap, maybe aluminized duct tape or some sort of really thick duct tape with heavy adhesive (bear bond or other similar).

Most likely a 737 engine pylon with a missing access panel. Screws might be zeus fittings, if not screwed in the panel comes flying off. Looks like duct tape or there was something applied over the missing access panel and then taped down. Either way. Non-issue.

Why exactly is this "scary"?

Does subby think that there's a possibility the wing could rip off because of this?

"Scary" and "Hero" are the most overused tags around here.

Speed tape is an aluminized adhesive tape used to do minor repairs on aircraft, and as a temporary repair material until a more permanent repair can be carried out. It has an appearance similar to duct tape, with which it is sometimes mistaken, but its adhesive is capable of sticking on an airplane fuselage or wing at high speeds, hence the name.


Here, order some up...

LOL, clicked on one of the items under the Google Search and got this:

DEI's Speed Tape has multiple uses, including race applications, temporary damage repairs, and taping body seams to name a few. Speed Tape tears straight and easy every time and is available in eight colors and the popular checkerboard.

For some reason, I saw it as this:

It may be time for some kind of intervention.

Jesus, that was some rapid-fire shiat. It's almost like there was a game show going on for who could talk the fastest. I understand a little bit of Spanish, but that was my worst nightmare of going down to Mexico and trying to ask directions or something.

It's scary because if that's what they show the paying public how up to date are they on the real maintenance. Like a restaurant that has a think layer of dust on the stuff you can see you probably don't want to see the kitchen, or eat there.
