Due to windmilling and fuel still flowing, i guess all it took was the heat of a hot turbine to light that fuel.

Compressor surge would be just the opposite, flames coming out the front.
is this always true? when a AC sufferes a compressor surge/stall flames always coming out in the front of the engine
|Quoting Scarebus03 (Reply 10):|
The fuel will ignite alone as there is not enough airflow to allow normal expansion of the fuel/air mixture, too much fuel not enough air. When the airflow resumes in between surges it blows the ignited fuel out the exhaust much like a flamethrower

I saw a big gob of flame come out the back of an engine on an SAA 707 at Heathrow when it was starting up. But it taxi-ed off and took off normally without delay. Would that have been a c/s at start up
