Is it illegal to pose for pictures while sitting in the engine intake. I was sitting in the intake of a Southwest 737-7H4 (N712SW) so the pilot could take my picture. What would the F.A.A. have done if they had caught the pilot taking my picture. Has anyone else done this before. I know Craig Murray has, I have seen his pic on A.Net, but that was in austrailia.

Any comments?

You know how the F.A.A. is. and besides, someone could get hurt.

There's no FAR that I'm even remotely aware of that prohibits what you described. Worst case (if some FAA guy/gal was prowling on the ramp) would be that they could try and nail you for some sort of security infraction, assuming you weren't an employee with a badge that allowed access to the AOA (aircraft operations area).

Well it's one of those things I guess you have to use your judgement on.

Superfly, That joke can be funny. But..... I WOULD NEVER ASK HER TO POSE NAKED, I WOULD NEVER MAKE SURE SHE IS NAKED... UNLESS SHE WANTED TO BE NAKED, I WOULD NOT TAKE PART IN NUDE PHOTOGRAPHY. I LIKE HER BETTER WITH CLOTHES ON (WE AINT MARRIED YET.  Wink/being sarcastic)

You know, I think I will try that soon. The problem is her mom... Her mom is VERY PROTECTIVE over her. So are there any tips on how I can get her mom to trust me so I can take her out to the airfield?

Sorry if I offended you.  Sad
What airport would let a young beautiful babe pose nude in an aircrfat engine?  Big grin
You need to come over to the Non-Aviation forums if your want Superfly's expert advise on the ladies.  Smile

To build up that sort of trust with the mother, just tell her you are going to show her daughter how thrust works.  Big grin
Without thrust, airplanes couldn't fly, right?  Smile

Last month in the Southwest Spirit Magazine there was a full page ad touting Southwest's 30th anniversary. About 15-20 of the original employees still working were standing/sitting on the wing of a Southwest 737, including Herb, Colleen and Rollin King. If they can do that, I guess you can have your picture taken in the engine.

35 Transactoid : Hmm, hard to say. There appears to be some "fuzz" around his right hand, and the shadow on his left foot looks like it's going the wrong way.
36 COboeing777 : of course it OK to do. Mechanics need to hop into the inlet sometimes to inspect parts especially on the biggers planes like 777. Speaking of which, I
