    Grisly – what happened to his bones? Surely you’d be able to see some evidence of bone?

    Jebus… Imagine being the one to ring his loved ones and explain that there’s absolutely nothing left to bury! 😯

    Crikey! I wonder if he was fighting an intrepid archaeologist turned ark-raider at the time?

    I did wonder too… but those turbine blades would make the worlds most expensive and powerful grinder…

    See the dents in the turbine blades? That’s where the deformed turning his bones into dust…

    There’s a video of some guy being sucked into a fighter jet engine on an aircraft carrier somewhere online. He gets spat out the back with only superficial injuries and survives IIRC.

    Yeah I saw that once, can’t honestly remember where. From memory the URL is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=unXNdrtf2_g, and it happens from about 2 minutes.

    I call total bullshit on this.

    The blades in the first incident you see are the intake blades, the compressor blades further back are much finer, there’s just no room for anything much to pass through without injury. Even if all the blades broke off, they’re going to embed themselves in whatever is passing though, it will be mincemeat.

    If you watch the video, he climbs back out the front. The guy who was involved has commented on the YouTube link.

    Yeah, hard to see how he’d dodge 2 or 3 sets of low pressure compressor blades, the same again of high pressure compressor blades, make his way through the combustion chamber unscathed then dodge 6 to 8 sets of high pressure turbine blades and another 2 or 3 sets of low pressure turbine blsdes. And each set of blades will have stators between them and the next set.

    But I might be wrong…

    he didn’t get that far, his chest jammed in the intake funnel.

    That video is genuine, the engine flamed out as the guy blocked the intake and he climbed out of the front fairly un hurt.

    I nearly did something similar a few weeks back when loading a tree through a chipper. A branch snagged the belt loop on my jeans and started dragging me in! 😯

    Luckily the belt-loop snapped… Doesn’t bear thinking about what a mess that thing might have made!

    I’m very glad to hear it. So not “spat out the back” then.

    Similar but just as lethal PTO’s with out safety covers. Very scary things.

    It was my dad’s chipper, he’s a tree surgeon so it’s a proper scary thing, not some DIY job.

    He was telling me about a lad that got pulled in by a length of rope – he was standing in a loop… Not much left of his bottom half by the time he hit the cut-out bar!

    Hmm. Well the video I saw was a long time ago and pretty low quality, but IIRC something exits the back of the jet. It could easily have been a jacket or something he was holding.

    Going to take more than a bit of T-Cut to sort the scuffs out on them turbine blades.

    Anyone got any suggestions for what body bag for…

    (apologies, gallows humour and all that. Genuinely quite nasty!).

    Is a link to that (very old) photo appropriate on a family website?

    Summed up by this extract from the accident report:

    MEDICAL AND PATHOLOGICAL INFORMATION

    The El Paso County Medical Examiner stated that neither an autopsy nor toxicological tests were possible due to the nature of the accident and the condition of the remains.

    Tucker seeing as the link title states exactly what to expect, and the pic is probably easy to find anyway, I’d yes. But if you want to report it then feel free – I won’t be as upset as you seem to be.

    The B+W vid is genuine – there’s an old interview available on the interwebs with the guy.

    I’m not in the least bit upset, and I’d already reported it, but gave the courtesy of an explanation why.

    was going to say he’d walk it off but I reckon that’ll take more that a couple of paracetamols to sort out!
