First of 3 daily "SpeedBird" departures boarding after midnight and operated by "Kilo-Mike" who seems to have her nose cone duct-taped for quite some time actually... curious and would love to know the brand of the tape! [Canon G5X]

The tape is called Speed Tape. Speed tape is an aluminum pressure-sensitive tape used to do minor repairs on aircraft and racing cars. It is used as a temporary repair material until a more permanent repair can be carried out. It has an appearance similar to duct tape, for which it is sometimes mistaken, but its adhesive is capable of sticking on an airplane fuselage or wing at high speeds, hence the name.

Industry slang also labels it "500 mile-an-hour tape". That is not a scientific number.
