An Airbus A320 aircraft, Air Canada flight 431, was on a scheduled domestic flight from Montreal International (Dorval) Airport, Quebec, to Toronto/Lester B. Pearson International Airport, Ontario. The take-off and departure were normal until a loud bang was heard while the aircraft was climbing through flight level 280. The flight crew immediately observed the rpm of the No. 2 engine (CFM International [CFMI] CFM56-5A, ESN 731-308) decrease as the exhaust gas temperature (EGT) increased. The engine was shut down. After securing the engine, the flight crew notified company maintenance and carried out an uneventful single-engine landing at Toronto with emergency response services standing by.
