The other day I was catching a flight out of Juneau in a 737-400 (Alaska Airlines Make-A-Wish 737). We went through a rough patch that had a lot of rain. Sitting by the forward part of the wing I could see the water going into the CFM-56. What I am wondering is how much rainwater can go in before there is a problem? Also, does a small amount of rainwater act like a water injection system to cool the combustion chamber?
