An Air Canada Rouge Boeing 767-300, registration C-GSCA performing flight RV-1901 from Athens (Greece) to Toronto,ON (Canada) with 189 passengers and 9 crew, was accelerating for take-off from Athens’ runway 21L when upon selection of initial thrust the crew noticed a slight yaw.

When the engines accelerated to take-off thrust a rumbling noise could be heard. When the aircraft accelerated through 80 KIAS the right hand engine began to roll back and became unresponsive to thrust commands.

The crew rejected take-off at 110 KIAS and stopped about 2000 meters/6600 feet down on the runway having become disabled as two outboard main tyres had blown. The crew declared PAN, emergency services responded.
