Remark Photographer
PP-SPL (cn 48745/596) I have looked on the Terminal B at Zürich how this plane rotate from Rwy 16! During the take-off, I heard 3 or 4 very loud bangs and then I saw the fire which came out of Engine 2. I took my camera and made a shot. What luck to see the flame because she was only visible for a few seconds! Please check out the original picture by clicking here.

At this time I was a flight attendant in VASP.Four days after this photo,this MD-11 gone to Brussels.I was there,as a crew member, to do the return flight to Brazil,but when the aircraft arrived,the engine n°2,was like a "flower".Yes the anti-icing exploded!So, I had to stay there "9 days",waiting the fix service.All the parts came from LAX.WOW!!!!

A visitor from United States posted Thu December 15, 2005:
I never knew MD-11s had afterburners :)

A visitor from United States posted Tue November 15, 2005:
It's very rare to get a shot like this one! Great job!

A visitor from Brazil posted Sun November 6, 2005:
Photo made at the accurate moment, therefore of the opposite would not obtain such visual effect.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Tue November 1, 2005:
I think the gasturbine had an choked or stalled compressor, which results in compressor surge. Maybe the bleedvalves or the variable stator vanes were reacting too slowly. Great shot!
