Remark Photographer
N46625 (cn 27529/2683) 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.

Not sure if this is CFMI F108 or GE F101...

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..

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

I think engine one is running a bit rich.

A visitor from Australia posted Thu November 24, 2011:
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!

Looks like the maintanence crew is having a bbq. Steak anyone?

A visitor from United States posted Mon January 25, 2010:
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.

A visitor from United States posted Sat January 9, 2010:
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.

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!

How do you like your steak?
This is one amazing shot.

Is it in hangar?

A visitor from United States posted Sat June 6, 2009:
Normal for post engine change. the perserviative oil burns off like that or it will smoke up the place real bad

A visitor from - posted Mon April 20, 2009:
Wow thats probably big enough to lit a smoke on. LOL great shot good timing.

A visitor from United States posted Tue November 11, 2008:
Who's up for smores?

A visitor from United States posted Sat August 23, 2008:
I think i might have been on this plane cause some of the wing looked a littel chared i was just checkin inf any 735s had engines blown well i guess i was on this plane 5*

A visitor from New Zealand posted Sat July 12, 2008:
Would appear quite common post engine change due to inhibiting oils even more spectacular on a dark night

Was it a compressor problem?

A visitor from Canada posted Sun July 22, 2007:
"and that was when i found i had a drinking" problem what kind of aircraft was in airplane? and to the persone who took this if that is the place you work how could it be a dull afternoon

A visitor from United States posted Tue October 3, 2006:
Really cool effect with the flame. Always think of the line from Airplane! about the engine running "a little hot" when I see this.

A visitor from United States posted Sat December 31, 2005:
Well, we can see where the light for the photo came from!
