VIDEO: JAL Boeing 747-400 engine sucks up cargo container

This is unbelievable! A Japan Airlines (JAL) Boeing 747-400 passenger aircraft was grounded at Los Angeles International Airport yesterday after a large object, believed to be a cargo container, was sucked into one of its engines.

The incident happened as JAL flight 62 was leaving one of the airport’s gates. All 245 passengers on board were taken off the plane and escorted to the terminal. No injuries were reported.

Hmmm, I wonder who pays for the damage! Just more bad news for JAL on a day that it reported a net loss for the last financial year.

    That is just so funny. How in the world did that happen, I wonder? Someone left the cargo container too close to the GE engines. It would be interesting to read the findings of the investigation.
