Not really, no.

It's Speed tape, which is basically super-adhesive aluminum. It's only utilized for minor repairs, and is nearly as strong as some of the plating that the exterior of the plane is made out of in the first place.

Stop being a little bitch.

I was gonna say, I've heard it called 100mph tape, but I'm pretty sure airplanes go faster than that, lol

for reference the skin on Boeing planes is between .063"-.080" (0.16cm -0.2032cm and most commonly the 0.063") while speed tape is only a fraction of that (about the thickness of the coating of paint on most aerospace parts. although it is a very high temper (increasing its strength and making it a pain to form), source of my knowledge: I have been working in the aerospace parts manufacturing. for almost 2 years now and one of the few people trained in the company that knows how to form the skins (contracted with boeing). TL;DRl its strong and planes outside skin is not that thick.

I didn't say it was thick though. I said it was strong.

I was not contesting that fact I was adding to what you said with some random knowledge I had from working in the field, I was on the wrong end of a prank with that **** and i almost lost a pair of pants because of it. definently would use it if i wanted to hang someone from the roof though.

Duct tape is much stronger than the rest of Boeing, so yes, you should be worried about every part which isn't covered in it

I'm actually probably going to change professions as you have to be about 50 before flying planes is a lucrative job....
pilots tart at around 16k a year....yup

we just have massive debt until then

Nope....it's a very low income job until you're extremely senior in a main line airline.
Most of us have to have 2nd jobs to keep us a float.
Some of us turn to food stamps.

it's not actually duct tape, but an engineered tape .... en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speed_tape

This is a standard practice they do to help reduce costs and time between flights. They'll repair minor damage with tape until they can get a moment to have actual repairs done on the plane.

As a Boeing employee, yes. Not really about the duct tape, but in general, yes

i don't think you're the one that made it, but in the event that you did, no you shan't worry. Duct tape was made for this kind of stuff, people used to patch up warplanes in WWII with the silver stuff.

Someone post that photo of the pilot who had his plane ruined by a bear only to be fixed with about 4-5 rolls of duct tape.
