Excellent article on Compressor stalls and what to watch out for.

Pop, violent left yaw followed almost instantly by violent right yaw as engine regained power and again.

 

Something I'd rather not experience again.

I only read the first part of that article but don't ya think if they had plugged the holes like most people would have done..... and if it sat out in those conditions someone should have done a walk around at the very least

True enough.

 

My experience was the result of the bleed air valve, had nothing to do with moisture.
