A National Air Cargo Boeing 747-400 freighter, registration N952CA performing freight flight N8-443 from Guam Andersen AFB (Guam) to Honolulu Hickam AFB,HI (USA), was climbing out of Andersen's runway 06R when a number of flap parts separated from the aircraft. The crew, obviously unaware of the damage, continued the climb to FL350 and continued to Honolulu where the aircraft landed safely on Hickam AFB about 6:45 hours after departure.

The aircraft is still on the ground in Honolulu 9 days later.

A flaps part, about 11 feet in length, was washed ashore at Guam on Friday May 17th 2019, a second flaps part of about 8 feet length on Sunday (May 19th 2019).
