Serbia's AIB reported the crew performed a walk around after landing and noticed the right/inner cover of the left hand had fractured with most of the cover missing. A subsequent runway inspection did not find any debris. The AIB determined the lower lock or locks of the inner/right cover of the #1 engine had unlocked or fractured while the aircraft maneouvered for landing at Belgrade. As result the cover fractured and most of it separated from the airframe causing minor damage to the engine systems. The occurrence was rated a serious incident and is being investigated by Serbia's AIB.
