Hearing about something fishy going on with the aircraft can be stressful for anyone and everyone on the flight and none of us cannot even imagine doing something with the flight so that we can enjoy a peaceful journey. But a man had some other plans when he was spotted wrapping tape on a flight’s plane. What was he trying to do?

In the shot video from the window, the passenger stated how this is a major problem that the staff is taping the flight when passengers have already boarded the aircraft. She even added that she will not fly with the Spirit Airlines anymore. She also raised queries about following the protocols for maintenance and the safety of the flyers. The passenger even pointed out that the employee will once again roll a new tape after it loses its stickiness.

Experts Have Expressed Their Views On This Incident!

Some experts in the aviation world have decided to comment on this video getting viral all around. They stated that the tape shown in the video is speed tape. This is not any regular one that we commonly use. Instead, this has the ability to be intact and stay in proper shape even when the flight is flying at a speed of 600 mph, according to a report by ARY News. Not just the speed, speed tape even works great during any environmental crisis.
