    Every pilot I’ve ever known in 35 years in the business knows this method.

    Could I refer you to the comment made about thie Ryanair incident by Patrick Smith? He puts the story into context.
    Thank you.

    This has left me speechless (which seldom happens) and unable to lift my chin off the floor! WHAT could they have been thinking to use Duct Tape on an airplane? Whomever gave the okay for the use of this should be on the curb looking for a new job!
