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

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