I think that was back in the late 2000's. One thing I've never found out is if he used a magic marker or somehow put his registration number back on the side before ferrying it out. I've always had this vision of him getting busted by the FAA for not having the N number displayed.

Wow! Not sure I'd be crazy about flying in a plane held together with duct tape but I guess it beats a long walk

My dad was an aircraft machinists mate in the Navy during WWII. They did R&R on PB-Ys in the South Pacific. One would come in shot up or with a tear in the cloth covering, they would just put a piece of cloth over it, sew it in and shellac it. Very little down time, he said.

We used 600 MPH tape to repair skin tears on 737's and MD80's until the plane could reach a repair station.

Heck, I think on most older small planes, the skin is just for aerodynamics and protection from wind and weather. Not like newer planes where the skin may actually be a structural member.

It looks like something Macgyver would do. I used to really like that show he had so many uses for duct tape.

This was on a episode of mythbusters and they showed it could be done. You could fly a plane held together with duct tape.

Thats what you call bad prop damage.

Always set your parking brake and turn off engine before exiting aircraft for a cup of coffee.
