C-17 Runs Snarge.exe, Bird Goes “Poof!”

Snarge is what gets left in a jet engine after a bio-ingestion incident. This aircraft swallowed what was likely a Black Kite, also known as a Shite-Hawk.

The US military aircraft was taking part in the Avalon Airshow near Melbourne Australia on March 1, 2019. Strike was on takeoff roll, takeoff was aborted and plane was withdrawn from service for inspection and possible repair.

Snarge can also be due to human ingestion, pic in comments. NSFW.
