FOD, the elusive enemy of aircraft

Airmen clean up foreign debris during the annual Foreign Object Damage walk at Misawa Air Base, Japan, May 6, 2013. FOD is a hazard for any aircraft and other precision equipment. Suction caused by the air intake of jet engines can pull objects into the aircraft intake and damage the engine. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Kaleb Snay)
