    This IS routine maintenance and used all of the time in the aeronautics field as a "quick fix"; it is NOT duct tape but a multi-layer tape made from Titanium, Tungsten, Aluminum and poly-epoxies. Do your research first, people. Not LOL >-(

    I`ll tell you what... If i look out the window and see a guy on a stepladder using tape on the wing.(Titanium or not) I still would laugh my ass off....after i ran for the door. That still would freak me out. Excuse my non areonautic adhesive identifying skills.

    It generally called "speed tape", and yes, it looks superficially like duct tape. Sure is quite a bit more expensive, but the looks on passengers` faces when they see it is priceless. :D

    My uncle used to work for DARPA as the main computer guy or something, and he learned that B2 bombers had gaps sealed with a radar absorbent black adhesive tape. He made an innocent comment that "Wow! a 2 billion dollar aircraft held together with duct tape!" The dude in charge said (in an evidently threatening way) "That`s not duct tape."

    They`ve used similar tape to patch up cars for racing in NASCAR. As long as you`re not breaking the sound barrier it`s fine for awhile.

    Why do you think American Airlines has the polished aluminum fuselage? It`s so the silverish duct tape isn`t so obvious.

    They thought about using WD40 first, but in the end Duct tape won the most votes...

    That is actually VERY high grade specialty aircraft tape. It`s very strong and completely different from duct tape.

    Aircraft-grade ducked ape.

    Four layers: 1) clear polymer UV-resistant plastic backing; 2) aircraft-grade aluminium-foil; 3) usually a high tensile form of mylar or something to bond layer 4 to layer 3; 4) can be either aerospace adhesive or aerospace adhesive impregnated fabric - often carbonfiber or fiberglass.

    Used for cracks and skin damage, it makes a great temporary fix. Can keep a wing - or flap in this case - from falling apart.

    While the fabric version falls under the definition of Duct Tape, don`t call it that in front of an aircraft mechanic - unless you WANT to see where that 7" wide piston can go. . . What has been seen, cannot be unseen. @.@
