Turbine engine explodes

~UPDATE~Thank you so much for the 4M+ views! This is a video of an engine on a test stand when a turbine blade is failed by an explosive device attached to a blade. Usually they fire a bird at the engine. A 3lb. dead chicken. This test was successful in that the failure was contained. i.e. engine parts did not go beyond the engine cowling. It does not take long for the engine to digest its self.

Bird Strikes Jet Engine
General Electrics test jet engines. Among the many tests, it shoots birds into the jet engine fan-blades. I know what it feels like to be aircraft engine stalled in the mid-air, 6,500 feet above the ground. It happened to me back in 1991, near Agua Dulce airport, not far from Palmdale, CA. On the day, I flew Cessna 152, a two-seater small aircraft. I was on my way to Las Vegas. When I reached Barstow, I encountered strong gusty wind. I was jumping up and donw in the seat due to strong turbulence, my head started hitting the ceiling. Then I realized that if I was kept going, hitting a mountain peak was inevitable before I reached Las Vegas. Hence I decided to return to Van Nuys Airport. Then there was stronger head-wind on my way back home. It resulted airplane fuel consumption twice as much. Guess what happened next? I ran out of fuel. The engine stalled and I had to make an emergency landing at the Agua Dulce. Somehow I managed to make a perfect landing after two loops. Otherwise, it would've been dead long ago, and impossibe being here and writing this. by cacomfort.
