A dull afternoon at work is livened up with a corporate barbecue. Captains log to maintenance: engine 1 running hot, please check. Joking aside, you can be sure the pros at Co will only allow this aircraft back into service once its fully repaired.

Really cool effect with the flame. Always think of the line from Airplane! about the engine running "a little hot" when I see this.

Would appear quite common post engine change due to inhibiting oils even more spectacular on a dark night

Great photo for clarity and contrast. It's also a rare shot because it's against the rules to EVER run engines in a hangar, so catching these guys doing it is probably pretty rare. This picture captures EXACTLY the reason why it's wrong to run inside a hangar. It is also quite possible that these guys induced the flames on purpose, fooling around. All you have to do is pull the ignitor circuit breakers when starting the engine.....then pop them in all of a sudden with fuel built up in the airstream. The photo shows exactly what happens. If this plane was not actually inside the hangar but just in front of the open hangar door....they're still wrong....and again, the picture shows exactly why you don't run in front of an open hangar door. You could set off the sprinklers...smoke and flame could enter the hangar and set it on fire!

Popping the ignitor circuit breakers? This is what makes A.net so special. Self-professed aviation geniuses posting comments like the one below. When, in reality, the poster is a 15-year-old in his mom's basement who has spent entirely too much time playing Flight Sim and logging "hours" with a virtual airline. You know nothing.

It was nice for workers to work on equipment like an engine but it is not every day they get a zesty barbecue while working.

Goofing off by pulling igniter breakers and doing so in the hangar? 'Wet' starts occur often whereby fuel is introduced but fails to initially ignite. If the pilot persits with the start and the fuel then ignites it doesn't cause a ball of flame to shoot out the rear like flame-thrower. It is contained within the combustion chamber and the hot, burnt gases pass through the turbine and out the exhaust nozzle, blowing away the fuel mist downstream. More likely a cpmpressor stall...Great capture nevertheless!

I think engine one is running a bit rich.

As you can see, not even the 735 can handle Mexican food.

Pulling the igniter circuit breakers?? wet start?? .. try again guys.. this is what happens to a "stored engine" when it is swapped onto an aircraft. engines have a special preservative oil put in them so that they dont deteriorate while in storage. when the engine is first started, after its installation, the oil burns off.. as another port below said " if it doesnt burn off like this, it creates MASSIVE amounts of smoke"... so its nothing unusual, just not something the public are used to seeing..
