Looks like the remaining mechanics are gonna be drawing straws to see who gets to do an engine rebuild...

be careful if you do that there are no children able to look over your shoulder, also if it says its a 'graphic image' it sure is

quite disgusting...but being from the RAF they show you loads of pictures and videos of people and objects going into plane and helicopter engines. there was one story i was told of a young female on an exercise with the forces.

basically when you exit a helicopter you ensure the pilot gives the ok and when exiting you head straight from the sides or to the front...never to the rear...will make sense if you look at a helicopter.

well anyways on this exercise the helicopter landed, to simulate a tactical attack, everyone got off as they suppose to but one female didnt...she ran to the back...she ran face first into the tail rotor!!! killed on the spot.

loads of stories like that where people weren't paying attention and walked into the engines, especially prop planes (trems age group of planes )

another website that can "disgust" even me is rotten.com some pictures on there scared me even one showing a heli-paramedic who "jumped" into the top rotor as it was stopping....took his head clean off!

but when you look at that picture and then you see this...you think lucky lucky man! (he lives thanks to his helmet and the fast actions of the pilot hitting the engine kill switch)

and now i wish i havent clicked that link. You need stronger warning there mate.

Going around the internet you are bound to run across something like this, but instead of getting used to it, it just makes me more and more uncomfortable. Reminds me of people putting up pics of those poor souls who jumped off WTC to save themselves from fires.

Just saying dont click something makes people want to click it more.

Stuff like that is always photographed. I used to work in a refinery - the health and safety stuff I saw was unreal. Two that stick out are the guy with the six inch nail in his eyeball, and the guy who had his arm ripped off at the shoulder with a chain... I dunno how many people caught themselves on fire. All part of the fun.

Well at least the engine looks salvageable.
