Very definitely a TruthInTelevision, as the jet engines most people are familiar with are the high-bypass turbofan engines on commercial airliners, which [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1DkUOOfDFk draw in a tremendous volume of air]] and thus produce hurricane-force winds in the region near the engine inlet. The spinning item at the very front of the engine is a very-unforgiving ducted fan made of titanium blades spinning at thousands of RPM, which will rapidly render an animal as large as a person into something akin to [[LudicrousGibs liquefied]] [[NotEnoughToBury beef]]. Ground crew that must work near active jet engines must keep anything not tied down (including themselves) some tens of meters away, outside the hazard zone, or else risk being drawn into the engine.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'', during the "no capes" montage in which Stratogale is flying by a Boeing 707 and waves at a kid only to be sucked into the engine when her cape gets caught. The poor kid must have been scarred for life, as while the audience is treated to a DiscretionShot, he obviously wasn't...

* [[Comicbook/{{X 23}} Wolverine]] narrowly avoids one in the first issue of ''Comicbook/AllNewWolverine''. Laura has Angel drop her onto the fuselage of a drone in-flight, and she begins to slide down towards the prop. Fortunately, she's able to [[BladeBreak stop with her claws]] ''just'' short of falling into it, as even with her HealingFactor such a thing would very likely have been fatal.

** Awesomely subverted in the Miracle on the Hudson (January 15, 2009), where US Airways Flight 1549 was losing altitude due to a bird strike, but the pilot managed to land the plane on the Hudson River without a single passenger or crew member dying and even walked the cabin ''twice'' to make sure no one was still inside.

** Most jet aircraft (unfortunately, not airliners) have long intake ducts with guide vanes and other obstructions. These are designed to keep the airflow to the engine regular (ducts often have odd shapes and twists that disrupt the flow, which is bad for the engine) but might serve to catch an article of clothing.
