Where's the goose?

Geese are anti-matter to engines. A goose will fuck up an engine.

It's pate now.

That engine is worth about half a million dollars.
Actually no, they cost a quarter of a million, it's just that they have to blow every other one up for quality control

Why can't they just put chicken wire over the front?
Because the engine has to take in a certain amount of air in order to burn enough fuel quickly enough to create enough thrust to push the airplane, which weighs a certain amount, fast enough to sustain flight. When you start restricting air intake you decrease the efficiency of the engine which results in less thrust and ultimately less ability to push that airplane. Given that catastrophic FOD is relatively rare it's not worth doing.
I have a feeling the question wasn't really serious.
It's obvious a Labrador retriever would be way more efficient at keeping the flocks away.
what about if you put a grid of lasers in front

on the plus side, that engine looks cool. I wish planes had plexiglass paneling sections so you could see everything working underneath while you were flying...or maybe not

stupid, this is a fan blade failure test
which is why you see one blade a different color, that's the blade with an explosive charge in it
That's what the geese want you to think.
You can even hear someone say "fire" before the explosion.
hahahah, I thought for a minute that was the one they were throwing the goose at.
also, there are much better videos of blade failure tests than this, like in the hopper.
Out of the hopper. http://www.poetv.com/video.php?vid=52400
The other video explains what's going on but this video is more exciting.
What's truly sad is I was joking. I didn't know the ones in the hopper really were his and he was being a prattling twat by declaring "MY VIDEOZ IZ BETR THEN URS!!!" and 1-starring this.
I think that's the douchiest thing I've ever seen on PoeTV.
