Quote

A man has been struck and killed by a Boeing 737 after he walked along an airport runway. The unidentified victim – believed to be a trespasser – died after being hit by the Southwest plane at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport in Texas on Thursday evening. CBS News reported that the plane’s pilot saw the man before hitting him, and tried to maneuver the jet out of the way, but was unable to do so. An airport driver found the man’s remains on the runway shortly afterwards. Medical help was summoned, but he was pronounced dead at the scene. A photo of the plane involved shows a huge dent on its cowling (engine housing) believed to have been caused by the moment of impact. The runway where the man was struck was closed for further investigation, with Austin-Bergstrom’s second runway remaining open. No-one on the affected plane, which had come from Dallas, was injured, with all on board disembarking shortly afterwards. The man killed did not have any identification on him, and was not wearing an airport uniform. Police are continuing to investigate who he is, how he got onto the runway, and what he was doing there.

A Southwest spokesman told Fox7: ‘Southwest is fully cooperating with local law enforcement and FAA as those agencies investigate the event. We sincerely thank our Crew for their professionalism and swift response.

It looked like he hit the side of the cowling. I doubt he was ingested.

Was he stoned?!?!
Good thing it was landing? (you dont taxi on the runway...)
Thrust reverse probably prevented the meat grinder...
Had to be going fast to leave a dent like that.

The article didn't say if the plane was taxiing, taking off, or landing. Could've been any of the three.

The article also didn’t give a description of the man which means he’s black if it was a criminal story but if he was black, they’d surely have made it out to be a “Black Pedestrian Run Down by Racist Pilot” story right? Hmmm. Maybe the reporter just sucks.

RR,
I figure on take off he definitely would have been sucked in.
Taxiing? That is a heck of a dent and I still think he would have been sucked in, unless the jet was turning into him, but it said he was on the runway..
I guess with as few flights as there are the pilot could have been spoiling up as he turned onto the runway...

so he was crafty enough to get out onto the runway, but not smart enough to stay out of the way.
mental illness, there I think. hate to hear about it, though.

Dent is on the outside of the ring cowling not the leading edge. Also a major dent on the side cowling. I seriously doubt he was ingested into the engine. The fact that they found the body also supports no ingestion. One less methican for taxpayers to support.

Bit of hyperbole there. grin I was there that night and saw it happen live from my chair in ready one. No one had any clue he'd gone down the intake until he fell out on the deck. Cat 3 is dark as all get out and when the motor FOD'ed everyone's night vision was shot. I doubt he would have made it down to the compressor, the bullet nose on the J52P408 doesn't leave much space but he was sure deaf on TR-TV that next night.

Apparently (from a SWA guy) the Austin guy got hit right after the nose gear came down on landing. Gotta feels bad for the crew. The guy on the runway, meh, he had to know he was there and it's not like a 737 doesn't have 1.3 gigwatts of landing lights.
