It is often mistaken as a “duct tape”. But it looks very shinny.
Yesterday, we came home on this Jetstar plane. And to our surprise, we saw this!
For don’t know what reason, Jetstar actually uses the duct tape to path the engine/turbine together. Seems like it.
Indeed looks very very scary.
But we arrived home from Hong Kong to Singapore safely.
The ride is very smooth. Should we thank the duct tape?
Today, I get the chance to search on the Internet - keyword “Jetstar duct tape” ...
And I found this video.
WOW! Jetstar!!!!!!!!! Why????? Always use duct tape to repair your airplane?
Let’s search “Budget Airline duct tape"
So, it is not only Jetstar. This is EasyJet. But they have explained why they need to use this. It is not a duct tape. It is called a “Speed Tape”. It is a common thing in airlines industries.
Tiger Airline not too bad. Use duct tape to stick the windows back. Make it more firm.
Cebu Airline fix a bit minor problem using duct tape.
OK. Wait now….
Let’s try to search “Singapore Airlines duct tape"
And… Singapore Airlines also uses it.
The airlines engineers knows that they doing.
Of course they have calculated all the odds and making sure that the plane flight is safety.
Using duct tape or speed tape to repair the airplane is acceptable.
It can be used to repair boat too.
And cars too.
Something to think about. hahahahaha
