Air China 818 compressor stall (or bird strike) video with impressive audio

Wed Sep 18, 2019 3:23 am

IAD-PEK CA818 suffered a left engine anomaly on departure from IAD today. Plane circled south of the DC area for a while before returning to IAD.

This happened right as left work near IAD - saw a helicopter hovering and tuned into tower in time to hear the landing. Funny thing is, I was on that runway a couple days ago running the 10k for the annual Dulles Day event Sat!

Footage of the landing is amazing, probably top 10% of 777 landings I've ever seen, and with one engine.

Whatever

The NBC affiliate in DC broke into their nightly news last night to show the landing. When the aircraft turned off the runway the #1 was still running, although I couldn't tell if it was at idle thrust or what.

The landing looked absolutely normal.
Nobody screws you better than an airline job!

They didn't use reverse on #1 - are you sure it was still running or was it just windmilling? I was under the impression that it was secured fairly early on in the flight.
