beatlemike Posted January 19, 2009 Share Posted January 19, 2009 After hearing so much on the news last week about the commercial airliner that landed in the hudson river. I have a question for you. If the problem is birds getting sucked into the fan blades is there a reason they dont have a large screen or guard on those to keep that from happening? To me it looks like they are enclosed except for the front. As you can tell I know absolutley nothing about aircrafts and have only flown once in my life and that was because i had no other choice. I know they are safer than cars put when I get on one I am terrified for the whole trip(and I was on some kind of sedative also).Did you ever have any close calls because of birds when you were still a pilot? Also are there any of the rest of you out there that are a big as weinie as I am when it comes to flying?Have a good Monday everyone!
