An Allegiant McDonnell Douglas MD-83, flight G3-833 from Knoxville,TN to Saint Petersburg,FL (USA) with 148 people on board, was climbing out of Knoxville's runway 23L when the crew stopped the climb at 13,000 feet and shut the right hand engine down reporting the engine had failed. The aircraft returned to Knoxville for a safe landing on runway 23L about 20 minutes after departure. The crew stopped on the runway requesting fire engines to check the right hand engine for any hot spots, emergency services reported no danger was visible and the aircraft taxied to the apron.

A replacement MD-83 reached St. Petersburg with a delay of 4 hours.

Passengers reported hearing a loud bang during the climb, the crew subsequently announced the right hand engine had been shut down and they needed to return to Knoxville.
