ENGINE SURGE FORCES AMERICAN AIRLINES FLIGHT TO RETURN TO AIRPORT

An American Airlines Boeing 767-300, enroute to Miami from Sao Paulo Guarulhos in Brazil, reported a loud bang some 11 minutes into the flight. The engine indications warnings were consistent with an engine surge, which led the crew to shut down the affected engine and returned to Sao Paulo for a safe landing 23 minutes later.

A later inspection revealed damage to the engine that required an engine change.
