UA uses exclusively IAE engines on their A32X aircraft.

If it were an “explosion”, then must have been uncontented...

Most likely a compressor stall... no explosion, but a rather loud ‘BOOM’ is heard. If it was an actual explosion there’d be passenger vids all over social media in no time. :duck:
Definitely N443UA, Ship 4643. Almost certainly an engine change. So will be at RSW for a few days.
