On November 29, 2016, about 0850 central standard time, a GoJet Airlines Bombardier CL600-2C10, N367CA, equipped with two General Electric CF34-8C5B1 turbofan engines, experienced an uncontained No. 1 (left) engine failure during cruise (FL 340). The crew reported hearing a loud noise from the back of the airplane immediately followed by a No.1 engine roll back and flame out. The crew declared an emergency, diverted to Lambert-St. Louis International Airport (STL), and made an uneventful single engine landing. There were no injuries to the passengers or crew. The flight was being operated in accordance with 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 121 and was a regularly scheduled flight from Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG)- Covington Kentucky to Denver International Airport (DIA)- Denver, Colorado.
During a visual inspection of the No. 1 engine at STL a hole was observed in the turbine case but the released debris did not penetrate the nacelle. The engine was removed from the airplane and shipped to Delta TechOps in Atlanta, Georgia for examination and disassembly.
