Watch An Engineer Repair A Jetstar Plane With Gaffer Tape

Ever stepped onto a plane and thought to yourself: “Wow, this is one fancy machine. I wonder what sort of smarts you need to keep one of these things going?”. I have always wondered that myself, but it turns out all you need is a big roll of tape.

Here’s a video one of our readers sent in that might make you think twice about ever getting in the air again. The good technician we see here appears to be fixing a window — something that I don’t think is ever meant to be opened at altitude — with a roll of gaffer tape. Lovely.

Thanks Ruben for sending this one in!
