Just watched a Condor 757-300 CFG1439 bound for Hamburg suffer engine problems during take off out of Lanzarote ACE. Looked like stall/surge with flames coming out of the right engine. Maybe bird strike. Turned to the east over the sea. Then, according to FlightAware south towards Fuerteventura at 5000ft where it subsequently landed.

Edited to say. Wife saw the "flames" when I looked up they had already stopped. Showed wife the Thomson 757 bird strike at Manchester and she said what she saw didn't look quite as dramatic. More like intermittent orange glow from the back of the engine.
