A RYANAIR plane with 200 passengers on board had to turn back after tape used to patch up a pilot's window came loose.

Musta been gaffer tape. Not enough sticky stuff. Duct tape is God, and would therefore not have come loose.
You really can fix anything with duct tape. Really.

The IAA said it had completed its probe.

That picture of the Ryanair boss says otherwise, IYKWIM. (AITYD)

This is your captain speaking. Did anyone happen to get duct tape past security? No need to panic. Yet.

The manual CLEARLY calls for Super Glue, not duct tape.

The owner of Ryanair is a member of Possum Lodge.

That tape will cost you $5 extra, payable when you check in.

Windscreen. This story is full of holes if you ask me.

They need some of that sheet 100 MPH tape NASCAR uses to stick the cars back together after wrecks.

Weenies. I've trusted my life to duct tape many times, and as someone who is mostly intact I can attest to its 90% success rate.

The Pilot made a good call.

I hear it was because his dog wanted to stick its head out the window. But I could be wrong.
