Wow. I hope everything turns out okay. They might have to retract the landing gear and pull a LOT 16 😅

If they don’t do that, they’ll have to do this

I think it might be a compressor stall judging by the image, as it does not look like a serious fire.

Anyways lets keep from speculating until more information is present :)

But what is that ?

Thats the picture I was referring to. Here’s what a compressor stall looks like:

Would have been really easy to non rev on that flight. I hope everything turns out okay.
