….or something like this might happen.
A Japan Airlines jetliner bound for Tokyo was damaged Monday 5/11/09 when a luggage container was sucked into one of the engines as the plane pushed back from a gate at Los Angeles International Airport…A baggage cart was “passing by” when the plane ingested the baggage container into one of the engines. It weighed over 20o pounds.
The military guys learned this a long time ago. Like this guy who got to see an A-6 from the inside. (He survived but understand he had some short term hearing loss). Flying risk isn’t confined just to the folks inside the plane.
