    $\begingroup$ @CrossRoads Presumably, examples of incidents involving foreign object damage. $\endgroup$ – David Richerby Oct 22 '18 at 14:01

    $\begingroup$ How does "Ground Vortex" come into play? A just departed plane would create a vortex that could drift down. ATC makes planes wait to depart behind one in order to give any vortex a chance to dissipate. $\endgroup$ – CrossRoads Oct 22 '18 at 17:14

    $\begingroup$ @CrossRoads I think they're referring to the vortex that forms on the ground towards the intakes. A Google image search for c17 ground vortex shows the phenomenon. $\endgroup$ – Sanchises Oct 22 '18 at 18:25

You can search the National Traffic Safety Board here

https://www.ntsb.gov/_layouts/ntsb.aviation/index.aspx

as a starting point.

Under Aircraft:Category, select Airplane.

Under Model, Select C17.

Scroll down and select Submit Query.

There are couple of hits on C17s on the first page of results, I didn't look at further pages.

Try this stack exchange link also on the same occurrence, but not just limited to C17s.

How does this vortex form inside a jet engine?
