Hungry plane

We hear of birds being sucked into the engine of aeroplanes but a Japan Airlines flight plane at Los Angeles airport has found something a little stronger to suck. It sucked a metal object believed to be a cargo container.

Here is a picture of container jammed in the engine.

The incident happened as JAL flight 62 was leaving one of the airport's gates. A cargo container was sucked and wedged into the engine.

All passengers on board had to be taken off from the plane. There were no injuries reported.
Investigation is underway as to how this bizarre incident happened.
