Last week, at Le Bourget in Paris, a Falcon 20 crashed because of an FOD 
to his right engine (caused probably by birds in the area).

It seems to me that this is still a problem which affects Airliners.

Is there something which could be done concerning changes in the engine 
design in order to prevent that these situations become to dangerous ?
Are there so many incidents to make worth a complete engine 
reconfiguration, at least for the heavies ?
