Why not? It's just fabric repair. Looks like a bear tore it open.

O.K., maybe it was supposed to be a metal skinned airplane but fabric serves the same purpose and everybody loves duck tape. Looks like an Aeronca model.

In 2004, Senator John Kerry used a chartered Boeing 757 from TransMeridian for his 2004 presidential campaign.

The airline declared Chapter 7 bankruptcy on 29 September 2005 and ceased all operations.

That would explain the evident lack of maintenance, bashed in fuselages, etc. Looks like the plane in the photo might have had a run in with an out of control skyway.
