May 13, 2009: Hungry Plane

Many of you may have seen this on the news, but I thought it was worth saving here for posterity.


From Here

Quote:
A Japan Airlines jetliner preparing to depart Los Angeles has been grounded after one of the plane's jet engines apparently sucked up a cargo container.

Television footage showed the large object wedged into an engine as the plane sat on the tarmac at Los Angeles International Airport.

JAL Flight 61 had been leaving the gate at around 1.30pm (0630 AEST) when the unidentified object blocked one of the engines, according to Los Angeles World Airports, the agency which operates the airport.

There's a guy in a blue jumpsuit between the cart and the compressor blades.

if so, then part of his jumpsuit is brown!

This has happened more times than they care to admit, but every once in awhile pictures show up on the net. Especially since so many people carry digital cameras.

Recipe for baggage container:

Take baggage container. Puree in jet engine. Keep pureeing. Puree some more. No really, keep it in there, it will go in, and you want that sucker thoroughly pureed. When pureed, serve in bowls - it is a nice touch to bring the bowls in on a train of baggage trolleys, or a conveyor belt a la sushi train.
Serves 3,000.

IIRC, the thing was empty. Good thing too. Can imagine what kind of stuff would be all over the tarmac? People just don't pack clothes ya know...

As a comment, that is not funny. But the brackets surprised me into a snort and a little bit of clear snot came out of my nose.

So I guess that's a thumbs up.

When in flight school training we watched a number of videos of people being sucked into the intake of a jet in various situations. The best of course being the one of the guy on the aircraft carrier:
