A Delta Airlines Boeing 767-300, registration N195DN performing flight DL-209 from San Francisco,CA (USA) to Tokyo Narita (Japan) with 209 people on board, had just reached cruise level 330 about 140nm northnorthwest of San Francisco when the crew requested to return to San Francisco due a #2 engine (PW4060, right hand) compressor stall, they did not request priority or need assistance. During the return the crew dumped fuel, requested runway 28R and a holding near San Francisco to complete the fuel dump. While in the holding at 6000 feet the crew reported ready for the approach but declared emergency due to an overweight landing. The aircraft landed safely on runway 28R about one hour after departure and taxied to the apron without stop.

Passengers reported the right hand engine emitted a bang and sparks soon followed by dumping fuel. The crew announced they were returning to San Francisco due to engine problems.
