They almost never had a chance! Think of the almost carnage, the could have been mangled, twisted bodies littering the tarmac! When are they ever going to learn that man was not meant to fly?!

I particularly like the bit that stated the "pilot regained control...". That would infer control was lost...

Did the engine EXPLODE after the guy stopped filming?

That was a pretty big compressor stall... was it something more? Why would they come to a complete stop on the runway for just a compressor stall? I can understand aborting the takeoff for the abnormality before V1, but I think they would have just continued taxiing back to the terminal, and not have caused the runway to be closed. That has me believing it was a little more than just a compressor stall, although, compressor stalls can be violent enough to damage the engine, and strew debris on the runway.
you still have to find a crew willing to fly this "barely airworthy" heap
no such thing as "barely airworthy" it's either Airworthy or Not
100% incorrect Ever hear of Ferry Permit? issued for Non airworthy aircraft

Well yeah control was lost...the asymetric thrust caused one of the main gears to go all the way over and onto the centerline! :shock:

Aborting takeoff was a pretty uncool thing to do.
Real cool macho pilots continue not only the takeoff but they fly at least across the Atlantic before they do anything special about the compressor stall.

Minor correction.

Cool pilots do not fly Air Busses.

Since when is an Airbus pilot "in control"?

Since he can choose not to press the "Fly!" button to start with.
