Short video showing what happens when a foreign objectsuch as a large bird is ingested in a jet engine. You don't want to be onboard! The joke during training was that you could ingest a 5 lb. bird at 250 kts...or a 250 lb bird at 5 kts. They actually have a "chicken gun" they use to fire the chickens into the engines for these tests.
