Back in the US!

Uh huh, I’ve been allowed entry and am currently in LA for a couple of days (I leave Wednesday evening) to look at some aircraft jacks we may be buying…

Of course, getting away from the cold UK is just a bonus 😛

I love my job…

Helluva blowjob:

Just read about the B747 that sucked a baggage container into it’s engine…

LOS ANGELES — A large metal baggage container was sucked into the engine of a Japan Airlines Boeing 747 on Monday as the jetliner prepared to depart with 245 passengers from Los Angeles International Airport, authorities said.

Japan Airlines took the 747-400 out of service and made other flight arrangements for the passengers and 18 crew members.

Officials said the container became lodged in the engine’s housing.

Airport officials said the vacuum created by the air intake of the left outboard engine was so strong that it pulled the empty container off a baggage cart that was either parked or driven too close to the aircraft.

Now, I love flying, but can you imagine the passengers having been through this – it must’ve made one hell of a bang… 🙂
