Why don't they have screens over those engines intakes?

That inflight meal was the toughest, most salt watery chicken I ever did have. The sheer gull of JetBlue to serve it prepared that way.

In this case, the evening news reported it was a hit to the windshield. Seriously.

Thank goodness it wasn't terrorist Canadian geese this time like the Hudson River/Capt Sully incident in NYC.

Otherwise, Homeland Security boss Janet Napolitano would tighten US-Canada border rules even more.

I thought of the same thing? I wonder why they don't just place screens over the jet intakes makes sense to me

it would cut down the air flow to the engine...the force is so hard it could suck in a person...

Fly through a flock of birds and the ones that would get reduced to mush stick to the screens instead. If the screens come apart the pieces go right into the engine.

because the screens would build up and the plane will crash , the jet has to have air flow , if you can make sense of this the faster a jet can fly , the faster it can fly more air more speed
