Damages on the airfoil surface of compressor blades of an aircraft were analyzed. Analysis shows that the damages were caused due to impact of foreign object on the concave surface of the airfoil and hence, referred to as Foreign Object Damage (FOD). The nature of FOD suggests that the blade was most probably hit by a feathery, soft, solid mass. There were no evidences to suggest that the FOD was caused by either metallic object or stones/pebbles.
