This image is of cracks found during routine inspections of the Kaman Aerospace SH-2 Seasprite helicopter. Pilots and crew of these helicopters were seriously alarmed (and rightly so) when this information was released.

If you can't stop-drill, how about filling the cracks with a strong bonding agent, covered with paint to match the original finish?

A little butt-crack cement will take care of that issue!
