Toby: I'll take the optimist side.lol but Will's comment here below is probably closer to correct, especially on the newer versions. At any rate, there weren't near enough people. That is probably just a standard reposition move for them to feed their hub at KLAS.

I was on a CO DC10-30 going out of HNL when the blew the compressor in the tail engine. Scared the crxp out of me and about 150 other folks..but as below, not too serious a problem...

80% likely a compressor stall. Not common but can be scary as hell sounding. Not a real danger though. Just like when your old Dodge truck backfires when it's cold.

1 out of every 200 take-offs is aborted for one reason or another.. hardly a news story.

1 out every 200 take-offs is aborted? Where did you get that data. For one, I flew for 40 years and aborted 3 take-offs.

I guess I must be like Richard here and well on the low side of that average. I flew for about 35 and can only remember 2-3 and I don't think any of them were due to an engine problem.

Is this stat for commercial flights or all aviation? I find it hard to believe this is accurate for commercial flights?
