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. @.@

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

Harrison Ford HAD to be involved, right?

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

Why do you think they call duct tape "500 mile tape"...this is why.

Why do you think American Airlines has the polished aluminum fuselage? It's so the silverish duct tape isn't so obvious.

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.

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."

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
