Hope large flocks of birds isn't a problem getting sucked into these huge engines.
Part of testing at Peebles facility is they'll shoot birds at the engines. It's pretty cool.
And just how would they do that?
Oh, man, I just Googled it and learned. Great articles and interesting videos. Really worth it! :D
Naw. Fake news.
Nope. On this you’re dead wrong. There is a bird gun. There are videos. There are articles. But in your ignorance and sloth and arrogance, you will never learn of them. You’re deluded enough without me trying to trick you into anything, my friend. I never Rick roll.

You say all that and then still call me your friend. I don't know that I'll ever come to understand you.

Probably not. It would take some self-realization to get that you arrogantly assuming I'd make up a story to waste your time might not result in the Kiss of Peace. I have better things to do than that, brother. Once I learned about it, I thought you'd be interested.

I really hope you've googled it. I spent an afternoon in one big holding pattern and survived by watching the videos and reading about it. I'd never heard of it, either.

This seems a perfect time to insert the classic joke:
The US Federal Aviation Administration has a unique device for testing the strength of windshields on airplanes. The device is a gun that launches a dead chicken at a plane’s windshield at approximately the speed the plane flies.

The theory is that if the windshield doesn’t crack from the carcass impact, it’ll survive a real collision with a bird during flight.

It seems the British were very interested in this and wanted to test a windshield on a brand new, speedy locomotive they’re developing.

They borrowed FAA’s chicken launcher, loaded the chicken and fired.

The ballistic chicken shattered the windshield, broke the engineer’s chair and embedded itself in the back wall of the engine’s cab. The British were stunned and asked the FAA to recheck the test to see if everything was done correctly.

The FAA reviewed the test thoroughly and had one recommendation:

“Use a thawed chicken.”
Oh, and for the record, the chicken cannon is a real thing. Here's the Wikipedia article on them.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

I wonder why aeronautic engineers can't come up with a bird deflecting device that could be attached to the body of the engine, in front of the turbines

I wonder why aeronautic engineers can't come up with a bird deflecting device that could be attached to the body of the engine, in front of the turbines
Something like this, but for planes:

Yeah. Seems to me that such an attachment would solve the problem.

turbines' job is to cram 100 tons of air into a 10oz space. I'm not an engineer, but I assume that putting anything in front of the engine will impede that process.

Bird strike... Never a good thing to hear from the mechanics. Even a sparrow can ground a plane if it hits the right spot.
With the modern high bypass turbo fan engines one going into the engine is less of a show stopper. If it doesn't go in the core, we normally just have to clean the "snarge" (that's the term, look it up if you doubt me) off the blades and fan case and maybe blend a minor ding in the blade. Core injestion means an internal borescope with a piece of equipment that is far too expensive to keep at every station. Those normally come back clean though. The hundreds of blades spinning 4000ish rpm at the fan as as much as 11000ish inside have a way of making roast birdy patte in the blink of an eye.
The 777 is an amazing plane. They were designed with maintenance in mind. When maintenance is easier, it is cheaper to do and maintenance delays are cut. This is a great thing for airlines. I hope that Amazon looks into using them as frieghters now that passenger airlines are beginning to retire them. At this point, looks like we'll just be adding on 767-300's as fast as doors can be cut in them.

I love that CPS has an expert on almost everything among its membership.

I am also pledge to use the word snarge as often as possible this week.

Yes CPS is, among other things, a valuable resource. I too am going to find a way to work snarge into a conversation.

Wasn't this on the tv show mythbusters like over 15 years ago?
