New Rule: No Crybabies As Airline Passengers!

Cool photos. Then, crybabies itching for an opportunity to complain and mess with other people's harmless lives.

https://gma.yahoo.com/engine-photos-...opstories.html

Did I mention how much I hate crybabies? Send 'em to Guantanimo along with the sunni maniacs.

A woman is driving a car! WHAAAAA!

A woman is photographed at the engine intake! WHAAAAAAAAAA!

Two men want the same contractual rights as any hetero couple! WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!

Well, it's either deal with the incessant crying, or the indignant outrage. Both cases present the same opportunity to make fun of them, in my opinion only.

As a former mechanic on jet aircraft, I'd ask for FOD inspection to make sure they didn't leave something behind in their picture taking session. It's unprofessional and dangerous to do things like that before takeoff. If they want that picture, wait 'til it's down for maintenance.

Show me being a crybaby too.

I'd have no issue with it.

Likely if something were left it would be noticed when the engine fired up, in which case the plane would likely be grounded.

Now Ken as a mechanic have you taken a similar photo?

I've seen a turbine shed its blades, and pepper the aircraft fuselage with holes, because it ingested a rag. Nothing hard, just a rag.

PS, no, I've never taken a photo like that, when I was working on the flight line.

You don't see too many attractive flight attendants anymore. Probably one of those men wanting to marry each other who complained. You know, the special rights type.

Not while the jet was active and on the schedule to fly. Plenty of pictures in an empty engine bay though, but I never intentionally put something anywhere near an intake. I've watched guys get sucked up from the ground from an inlet on the side of an F-111. He walked under during an afterburner run, didn't work well for him until they pulled throttle back Luckily, it grabbed him by the field jacket he was wearing and nothing came out of it to FOD the engine.

If the jet has been preflighted, to put anyone or anything near an intake is not only dangerous, but stupid as well.

Seriously, why do you bother bringing your opinion to an issue you know absolutely less the zero about??

I should be clear, I saw it after the airplane had limped home on three engines. The pilot was pretty mad. He said that he saw the rag blowing across the flight line and get sucked into the #2, but there was nothing he could do about it.
