A UPS United Parcel Service Boeing 767-300, performing flight from Philadelphia (USA) to Cologne (Germany) with 3 crew, engine shut down in flight.

  • Aircraft was enroute when the crew declared emergency reporting they had needed to shut the right hand engine (CF6) down due to low oil pressure.
  • In response to the emergency declaration ATC queried “do you wish to continue lower”, the crew replied in the positive and was cleared to descend to FL210.
  • The aircraft diverted to Shannon for a safe landing on runway 06 about 30 minutes after leaving FL330.
