Some travellers are uneasy after an airport employee said that personnel use tape to “keep planes together.”
On Sunday, the runway-employed TikToker posted the video (June 19).

Any other ramp agents notice this frequently, they questioned the audience.

The movie, which has received over 1.8 million views, demonstrates the taping up of a variety of plane pieces, including the wings, body, and engine rims.

The overlay text said, “Point of view: You start to notice all the tape and flex seal that holds planes together.”

Some viewers were uneasy after watching the quick seven-second clip.

Maybe I don’t want to travel anymore, one person said.

Another cynically remarked, “Ah yes, absolutely needed this before I catch a seven-hour flight.”

However, several said the airport worker was spreading false alarms.

They called “tape” and “flex sealterminology “‘s “misleading” and criticised it.

In spite of appearing to be a last-minute DIY patch, it is actually standard procedure and not the typical duct tape available in stores.

The silver strip is thought to be speed tape, which is frequently utilised in the aviation sector to make rapid repairs on planes in order to prevent delays.

In one instance, an easyJet passenger was startled to observe a worker wrapping the engine with tape prior to takeoff.
