    I don't.

    I considered the possibility that the crew believed that there was an external fire and thus made the immediate return but then I just saw one of the videos which appears to show the plane on final approach with the surges still occurring, so obviously the engine wasn't shut down and the fire handle wasn't used. Also the "mayday" and subsequent coms did not sound stressed. In this situation the crew would probably leave the engine running (and repeatedly surging) at flight idle to retain the accessory systems and minimize yaw (less drag plus a bit of thrust) but I still wonder why they opted to land overweight as I fail to see the emergency here. If they were concerned about the recurring surges, they could have just shut the engine down while dumping fuel.

    They also chose not to dump fuel so they must have thought it was more serious than a typical IFES incident.

    Excuse me for leaving a "Mayday" out.

    Read carefully. The AvHerald article doesn't say that they declared "Mayday Mayday".
    It clearly says that they declared "Mayday Mayday Mayday".

    So just for the record, the engine was NOT on fire. The air going through the engine was not enough to burn the fuel that was being injected, so the exhaust gas still contained fuel that ignited OUTSIDE of the engine when finding fresh, oxygen-rich air.

  • Engine Ignites Aboard Philippine Airlines Flight; Jet Lands Safely At LAX

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – A Philippine Airlines flight was forced to return to Los Angeles International Airport after an engine caught fire Thursday.

    Flight 113 departed for Manila just after 11 a.m. and landed safely around noon after the aircraft was seen spewing flames from one its engines shortly after takeoff due to a mechanical issue, a LAX spokesperson told CBSLA.
