UA 737-800 compressor stall on take-off from HNL (video)

Tue May 28, 2019 3:40 pm

Last Sunday, 5/26, flight UA132 from Honolulu to the Marshall Islands suffered a compressor stall on No.1 engine right after take-off from 8R. A passenger captured on video (link below):

The flight returned to HNL safely.
Private pilot. Frequent flyer. Aviation geek. Proud of all 3.

Best that it happened in HNL rather than MAJ.

Glad it all went ok

I notice the quick reaction to more flaps. I would have been in a panic if I saw that.

This happened to me on a CX a340 night flight out of HKG. I was in a similar seat situation behind wing. Heard a bang and then ~'50 feet of flames shot out of the inboard engine, which shrank and shrank and shrank, and was eventually just sparks like seen in the video above. We heard nothing from the cockpit for about 15 minutes. Eventually the pilot made an announcement that went, "...we're going to return to HK. We've had a bit of trouble with an engine so we shut it off. But....we've got three more, so we're all good."

Perhaps commonplace at the global level, but a bit of a harrowing flight.
