Spirit Airlines does White Trash

Now I will add that I have learned over time that there is a FAA tape called “Speed Tape” that is used on planes and looks like duct tape.   I still wouldn’t want to see that out the window of my plane.

  1. It’s not duct tape. It’s called speed tape and it’s normal to use in the airline industry. We put it on leading edges of services when the start erroiding due to the wind, also when sealant between services is applied to prevent it comming off before it is fully cured. There is nothing wrong with it and it is not white trash.

  5. That’s not duct tape. It’s speed tape and it’s used to improve a plane’s aerodynamic shape by covering screw heads, seams, etc. Unfortunately, it often comes off during flight.

  7. Actually there is a product they use on planes in the Navy, it’s called “1000 mile an hour tape”. I kid you not, this stuff looks and feels like duct tape, but you have to cut it, you can’t tear it. They put it on wings, engines, where ever.
