Airplane engines, during manufacture, are tested for durability against bird strikes. They throw frozen birds at the engines to see how much punishments they can take before complete failure

Ouch! Those poor birds, unknowingly becoming crash test dummies just for aviation safety. :neutral_face:

Believe it or not, that’s the first thought that came to my mind too.

The perfect example of how to make a clickworthy graphic. I legit thought that there were THAT many birds in the picture near the engine.

I agree! That’s why I chose this picture too
