Why you don't stand near the jet engine on the tarmac
But that's what happened at Los Angeles International Airport yesterday when a Japan Airlines 747 was pushing back in preparation for its departure to Tokyo. As the engines powered up, a metal baggage container got too close to the engine and was swept up and lodged inside of the cowling. Oops.
Nobody was hurt in the incident, but I'm sure it's a huge inconvenience for the passengers and airline who were displaced.
