"A Ryanair plane with 200 passengers on board had to turn back after tape used to patch up a pilot's window came loose. Passengers watched in horror as ground crew put the tape around the edge of the windscreen shortly before take-off from Stansted, Essex, to Riga, Latvia. The Irish Aviation Authority said the tape was being used as an extra precaution to secure a new window seal. But the pilot aborted the flight after 20 minutes when the tape started to become loose and made disturbing noises." [editor's note: You mean there IS something duct tape can't fix!
