These were fun to watch too.

Never worked on a turbine. But back when I was in college and had a nascent business, I dropped a small washer through the carb of my F250. After much effort w. the rudimentary tools of a po' college kid, I managed to fish it out. Awesome!

I put everything back together and fired her up. BANG! BANG! CLUNK! BANG! WTF? It sounded like twenty 2' pieces of rebar in a dryer. I had to send it to a mechanic.... seems the fucking nut that went with the washer also fell into the carb. $2500 for a Jasper engine is a lot of dough when you don't have any!

This isn't as bad a sound but it IS the sound of hundred-dollar bills turning into noise:

I can't find it but there used to be a high speed film of a J-57 shaking itself to death after a fastener was deliberately dropped into the intake. The whole engine was squirming like a hula dancer before it finally shat its gut out.
