Air Canada flight AC872 is a routine scheduled flight between Toronto and Paris CDG.

Furthermore, the aircraft specifically involved in the compressor stall after departure was C-FIUV.

As per data from Planespotters.net, C-FIUV is a 16.3 year old Boeing 777-300ER that was delivered to the airline in March 2008.

Of the 777-300ER variant, Air Canada has 19 of them in their fleet.

Furthermore, of that 19, all of them are in active service with an average fleet age of 14.0 years.

AC872 departed Toronto at 2121 local time on June 5, bound for Paris CDG.

As you can see from the video above, the flight suffered a compressor stall/engine failure moments after departure.

You can see flashing appear from the right hand engine as the compressor stall was taking place.

From there, the crew turned back to YYZ, landing around 30 minutes after initial departure.

C-FIUV Remains Grounded Following the Incident…

Data from RadarBox shows C-FIUV, the Air Canada Boeing 777, is still grounded in Toronto following the engine failure.

Furthermore, it is unclear when the aircraft will be fixed.

It ultimately depends on the scale of the damage received during the compressor stall.

For now, all eyes will be on how much longer the aircraft will be grounded before it can return to commercial service.

As soon as we have more information pertinent to this incident, then we will update you accordingly.

For now, this remains a developing story pending additional updates.
