  • Duct Tape Airplane Repair

    Check out this use of duct tape. One of the best uses of all time.
    If this is posted somewhere else, I apologize.

    Not the main point, but this comment answers a question I raised in another thread:

    However, in Faster than a Speeding Jet: Single Engine Travels I came to the conclusion that with the security checks and constant flight delays, it was more comfortable and just as time-efficient to use the Saratoga. Also, the food is definitely better.

        Like the saying goes, "ducktape fixes everything". Always have one roll around, I do. Nice job with the tape.

          I wouldn't believe everything I see on the internet!
          Lower down that same page is the following:

          "How much fuel do you use?"

          "This is very approximate, but:
          At a cruising speed of 175 knots and a burn rate of 18 gph, that’s 16 miles per US gallon, 13 miles to the imperial gallon or 17 litres per 100 kilometres."

          AFAIK a US gallon is smaller than an imperial gallon?

              I know of an Alaskan Caravan that had extensive left wingtip damage on about the outboard three or so feet. Not enough to interfere with the aileron. Pictures of it were sent to Cessna, they did the calcs and approved it for ferrying. Things are done a little differently up there.

                That creates a heck of a paradox. What does it do to things we read here?

                  Most the time people say "duct tape" and "plane" together it is usually speed tape. Though that pic looks like genuine Duct tape. Besides, if it were speed tape I think it would be too heavy to fly.
                  Signatures are overrated

                      It proves that my math is not very good and my ability to convert is worse!

                      Thanks for that. I'll go sit in the corner with a calculator and get it right.

                        While I am inclined to agree with you, this story however, is very much a true one:

                          1 Imperial gallon equals 1.2 US gallons... So YOU might actually LEARN something from the internet.
