Have you ever seen such a thing? I believe it's a compressor stall and it's the second time I saw such an incredible (and loud) happening, the first being in a L1011 taking-off! After touch-down, this DC-8 started reversing and loud bangs were noticed! [Canon 7D + Sigma 120-400]

Brings back a lot of memories. I rarely saw a -62 or -63 that didn't do this. I used to hear it outside of the ops office at the old ATL jetport and the boom,boom,boom, announced their arrival.
