Very impressive shot! I have witnessed surges like this before from the inside with the CFM-56. Ours was caused by a maladjusted variable bleed valve that caused a compressor stall as the engine transited from high RPM to low RPM.

Very nice! This is what I call being at the right place at the right time! It must've scared some of the PAX to see flames shooting out of the engine.

Looks like the pilot was in a rush because he was using his afterburners. Very nice and very lucky-5/5

Unusual to see something like this! What is the difference between declaring, or not declaring an emergency under such circumstances?

And to turn off the afterburners press Shift+F8... :)

*Burp*
*Ding Dong* Ladies and gentlemen, from the flight deck, we are going to return to Newark for a small mechanical problem. On a completely unrelated note, there will be fresh goose for everybody at the gate.

To the person who asked why an emergency was declared: they probably didn't have time, as they continued the approach and did the memory items for engine out. Plus on approach in fair weather the tower is able to see the aircraft so it's not such a necessity.

Remember: Aviate, Navigate, Communicate :)
