A Delta Airlines Boeing 767-300, registration N16065 performing flight DL-99 from Paris Charles de Gaulle (France) to Detroit,MI (USA), was climbing out of Paris when the crew stopped the climb at FL200 due to a problem with one of the engines (CF6). The aircraft entered a hold over the English channel, while in the hold the crew decided to divert to Amsterdam, positioned to the North Sea and entered a hold there at FL100 before positioning for an approach to Amsterdam's runway 18R where the aircraft landed safely about 3:20 hours after departure.

The airline confirmed an engine issue as cause for the diversion to Amsterdam. The passengers were taken to hotels in Amsterdam and have been rebooked onto other flights to Detroit on Jun 20th.

The aircraft is still on the ground in Amsterdam about 5 hours after landing.
