    I saw that story. A C-130 engine is normally ran with a prop, even when in a test stand. The intake is fairly small also so I'm wondering if he got into the intake or into the prop. Bad way to go regardless of how it happened.

    For the record I had a mechanic snatch me back from the intake area of a DC-9 when I first worked around those aircraft. Don't know if it would have pulled me off the ground or not but I was getting close and the engine was at full power.
