I believe the aviation industry euphamism is "high speedtape." From what I can gather it's no different than duct tape, but I would be willing to bet it cost considerably more.

I believe that is called "200 mile-per-hour tape" :D

Its aluminum duct tape, also known as speed tape or 600 mph tape.

William- That's neither duct tape nor speed tape! That is actually the French's version of carbon fiber laminar design:-) AQ,NYC

I've seen duct tape like this used before. I once saw a 707 freighter used by a Russian Cargo company at night at Melbourne International in Australia. Had duct tape right along the nose since they'd had to patch it up after it sustained damage in a storm. Anyway nice shot of the tape on this A330

It is much different than Duct tape, it is very difficult to move, and is very very stiff, 600MPH tape, if you've ever actually used it or touched it you'd realize why they call it high speed tape!

Good detail shot of the thrust reversing engine.
Nice comment! I think you will call this a ducted fan.

Speed tape applied due to lighting strike to #2 T/R translating cowl. All in the A/C maint manual and addtl. engineering instructions. Rather stylish, not?
