That’s the name of your new metal band, but also the theme for today’s post.
I’m staying away from every site that might spoil me about the series finale of LOST before I get the chance to watch it, so I’m a bit limited in my search for interesting stuff. Engine Ingestion will have to do.
Engine Ingestion doesn’t have a wikipedia page to explain it for me, but from what I’ve gathered it’s the technical term for things, mainly people, being sucked into aircraft engines. That being said, DON’T CLICK THE LINKS IF YOU DON’T WANT TO SEE GORE. There be chopped up people in there. I have however not posted any photos in the actual post, so if you just want to read it’s safe.
This is what’s left of a mechanic that got sucked into a Boeing 737 engine (photos). It’s not upsetting in the sense that it’s gory, but seriously, I dare you to look at it and not be impressed/terrified of the powers those engines have. There’s truly nothing left except a splattered slushie of human. Hopefully he went in head first and never felt a thing, but there were still passengers on the plane who saw the accident happen. O_O Story (no pics).
Actually it seems like Boeing 737 is a bloody murdering machine. I’d make a remark about selling the idea to Stephen King about airplanes coming to life and eating people through their engines, but I haven’t read all his books yet and from those I’ve read it’s possible that he has already written something like that. I mean, he’s written about possessed wranglers killing people after getting a taste of blood, and there’s the Buick 8 from another dimension that did some nasty things, and I’m sure a several other objects. Anyhow, according to this article (no photos), there have been 33 reported ingestions of personnel into an engine on 737-100/-200 airplanes since 1969.
A few years ago a worker in China had the same thing happen to him. :S The article (no photos) mentions that he was wearing white clothes when he was sucked into the engine, which makes the photo of the incident a bit more unnerving. It’s difficult to really understand that this used to be a human being. If I’m reading the article right though there was larger parts of the corpse that made it through the engine which you can’t see in the photos.
And fuck choppers too! I will never go near a chopper! There supposedly a case of a guy with a ponytail who walked too close to the hind blades of a chopper and got his scalped ripped straight off his scull. I couldn’t find the story or photos of that, but here’s photos of a chopper decapitation. I seriously hope I don’t have to warn you that it’s gory.
I’m not sure if it’s possible to end this horrible post on a good note, but here’s a clip of a man who got sucked into an engine… and survived! It has a video of the event too.
