Subject: RE: Parody Urged:Fixing planes w/ DUCT TAPE!
Back when I was a working forestry tech, I flew at least a couple of times on a Northern Ontario bush plane with conspicuous duct tape patches on the tail assembly. A Twin Beech as I recall. The pilot was more concerned about the leaky pontoon.

On a 727, that would make me a tetch nervous.

Duck or duct, as soon as the stuff got popular more and more cheap variants started to show up. I would only fly on a plane that was taped with the best!
