1996-05-23: United Airlines flight 935, a Boeing 767-300 aircraft, was abeam Iqaluit, Northwest Territories, on a scheduled passenger flight from London, England, to Los Angeles, USA, when the crew heard a popping sound from the left engine area, and noticed that the left engine exhaust gas temperature was approaching its limit. The crew shut down and secured the left engine and declared an emergency. The crew diverted the flight to Churchill, Manitoba, and landed the aircraft without further incident, with emergency response service standing by. The operator sent another aircraft to Churchill to take the passengers to their destination. A replacement engine has been sent to Churchill and is being installed. Maintenance engineers suspect that the affected engine experienced compressor stalls due to internal damage in its compressor section.
