Check out the fire coming out of No.1 engine caused by a compressor stall or surge! During its take-off roll (probably near V1) 4 extremely loud bangs came from the aircraft, and fire started to come out of the engine. The captain managed to stop the TriStar before the end of the runway, and after inspections it taxied back to its stand under its own power. The aircraft remains stored at AMS to this day.

The reason the a/c was not able to leave was the fact it suffered engine problems on 2 subsequent take-offs and had to abord take-off twice, while performing flights for DCA to the Dutch Antilles.

Finally got fixed up and flew out of AMS back to Lisbon after 3.5 years orso.
