Subject: RE: Parody Urged:Fixing planes w/ DUCT TAPE!
Think it may be common practice...Taping up planes, I mean. They use thin sheet alloy, aluminum (or aluminium,) self-adhesive, proof to 600MPH (I think I remember the figure.) They certainly will 'fix' faulty panel doors like this on other airlines. Do you know they call sticky-tape "Durex" in Australia? Truly the land of do-it-yourself.
