An Allegiant McDonnell Douglas MD-83, registration N405NV performing flight G4-737 from Bangor,ME to Orlando Sanford,FL (USA) with 155 passengers and 5 crew, was in the initial climb out of Bangor's runway 15 when the crew declared Mayday, stopped the climb at 3000 feet reporting the left hand engine had suffered a compressor stall. The aircraft positioned for an ILS approach to runway 15, requesting in case of a go-around to just climb out on runway heading to 3000 feet which was approved, and landed safely on runway 15 about 20 minutes after departure. The aircraft taxied towards the apron but stopped somewhere down the taxiways on request by emergency services. Emergency services reported it appeared the cone of the fan of the #1 engine had "gone".

Passengers reported the aircraft was airborne for about 10-15 seconds when one of the engines emitted a number of loud bangs.

The airport reported a part of the engine had separated from the engine.
