CIAIAC: final report on MD-83 contained engine failure
4 September 2008

The Spanish CIAIAC released the final report of their investigation into the contained engine failure on an MD-83 in July 2004.
The left engine failed at 5400 feet after takeoff. The pilot returned to Alicante where the airplane was evacuated, resulting in 19 passengers sustaining minor injuries.
The probable cause was the simultaneous or near simultaneous breakage of two stator vanes in the 8th stage of the HPC resulting in general engine failure. (CIAIAC)
