Hence the term, “feather the engine”…
“How far can we get on just three engines?” “All the way to the crash site..”
On both U.S. commercial carriers that I worked that would actually be no. 3 engine. Not sure about foreign airlines or the military though.
I used to work for a jet engine manufacturer and would take walks at lunchtime around the grounds behind the test stands with a couple of coworkers. Every so often they would have a cage set up to trap some birds. The birds would forced into the front end of a running engine to pass safety tests that the engine wouldn’t have damage that forced it to quit. Sounded cruel but “real” birds was the only way to be sure that in real life that the engine would survive flying thru a flock of birds. Fake birds wouldn’t have worked. They also used chunks of ice to test. Of course too many birds or something bigger could still take out the engine. Remember that plane that was forced to land on the Hudson River after taking off from LaGuardia airport?
Am I the first one that doesn’t get the joke about birds wearing pointy hats?
Witch engine did you say it was?
Witches Be Loco!
“It’s strange, so strange.
You’ve got to pick up every stitch;
Whoa, must be the season of the witch."
They need John Lithgow.
(Twilight Zone movie, in case that’s a little too obscure)
She must have been texting while flying and didn’t notice the plane.
The Witches Union will sue the airline.
That’s pretty good altitude for a broom! Is it the new “Comet 3000”?
BroomHilda is gonna be really, really P/O’d
Are you near the Hudson? Better make an emergency landing!
We’re sorry about the bump ladies and gentlemen. We’ve had a malfunction in one of our engines but we can still make our destination of Emerald City Interdimensional. As always, thank you for choosing Oz Airlines.
Uh, sorry. That there is Engine Three.
I am ex-Air Force, we would call this FOD (acronym Foreign Object Damage)
So…while it’s raining witch, everyone is making fowl jokes?
Just fly through a rain storm and the problem should melt away.
