One of the sounds (not the only one) that will give any maintainer chills. yeesh...
Birds gotta swim, fish gotta fly, assholes gotta ass.

"Common sense" is an oxymoron.

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.
