A passenger of Spirit Airlines is going viral after he filmed footage of an employee putting tape across the wing of an airplane, moments before the flight took off.
The video has been viewed more than a million times in just one day, as many voiced their concerns on the matter and ordered the airlines to investigate what the whole fiasco was about.
Shocking images featured a man that seemed to be an on-ground engineer trying to reach out and perform some sort of maintenance affair on the aircraft.
It was just shocking and surprising as he used tape that appeared like duct tape to carry out the amendments. But it was soon revealed how the tape was in fact aircraft and is actually used quite routinely. But that was not good enough for the content creator filming the incident.
The female TikTok user who goes by the name My Honey Smacks explained how it’s just an awful thing to witness when you’re right about to take a flight. She revealed how air travel is already so scary as it is. And now seeing all of this just had her and many others in a state of dilemma.
Many people were mortified and that’s when the Airline was forced to step in and clear the air which feels seems to be a major misunderstanding.
The airline slammed all reports claiming it’s unsafe and lacks the right materials to fix errors on the flight, be they small or large.
They said it was a routine procedure and it’s not something they or others have been doing right now. According to them, there was nothing to worry about and if that was the case, they would be grounding the plane even before such a video came out.
The incident reportedly took place while the aircraft was parked at an airport in Nashville. And the news spread like wildfire online, thanks to the power of social media.
