On June 29, 2005, a Fly Air Airbus A300B4-200, registration number TC-FLF, experienced a uncontained engine failure in the No. 1 engine, a General Electric CF6-50C2R during takeoff climb from Amsterdam International Airport - Schipol, Netherlands. Initial photographs showed a mid-span transverse fan blade separation, heavy damage to fan leading edges, and one penetration through the fan cowling. The size of the opening and heavy rub/impact damage suggested that a portion of the liberated fan blade section exited through the cowling after contact with the remaining fan blades.
