Subject: RE: Parody Urged:Fixing planes w/ DUCT TAPE!
As far as I can see, having spent many hours in Home Improvement Centers on both sides of the pond, "DUCK" tape appears to be purely a British thing.

I never saw it referred to, labelled as, or advertised as anything but DUCT tape in the States. As well it might, since its main use was to repair ducts, as opposed to ducks.

I see no reason why it shouldn't be used to repair airplanes. The REAL stuff, that is, not the DIY crap available in the Homecenters.
