A Garuda Indonesia Boeing 737-800 had to return to Sultan Hasanuddin International Airport in Makassar, Indonesia, after an in-flight engine failure occurred shortly after departure.

According to the AvHerald, the 10 year old aircraft, with registration PK-GFF and performing flight GA-642 from Makassar to Gorontalo, was climbing out of Makassar runway 21 when the CFM56 engine (engine number two, located on the right-hand side) began to churn out black smoke behind it.

The crew stopped their climb at 4000 feet, shut the engine down and reported that the engine was damaged; they then returned to Makassar for a safe landing on runway 03, 25 minutes after departure.

Upon inspection, performed after landing, metallic particles were identified in the engine’s exhaust pipe. The 34 passengers onboard the aircraft were put on a replacement B737, which reached Gorontalo after a delay of 3 hours.
