On March 27, 2020, the Danish Aviation Accident Investigation Board (AAIB) informed the NTSB of an Airbus A300-622RF cargo airplane, powered by two Pratt & Whitney PW4158 turbofan engines, that experienced a right (No. 2) engine failure during approach to land at Brussels International Airport (EBBR). The flight crew reported vibrations from the No. 2 engine along with an Engine Indicating and Crew Alerting System (ECAM) alert and reduced power to the No. 2 engine in accordance with the airplane's quick reference handbook (QRH) procedure. During the post-flight examination of the No. 2 engine, debris was found in the tailpipe, low pressure turbine blade damage was observed, and both the high pressure and low pressure rotors were unable to be turned.

The NTSB assigned an US Accredited Representative to the Danish investigation in accordance with Annex13 as the state of manufacturer of the engines. All information on this incident will be released by the Danish authorities.
