A Kalitta Air Boeing 747-400, registration N401KZ performing flight K4-335 (dep Jun 10th) from Los Angeles,CA (USA) to Brussels (Belgium), was enroute at FL370 over the Atlantic Ocean about 550nm southwest of Keflavik (Iceland) and about 1150nm west of East Midlands,EN (UK) in contact with Gander Oceanic Control when the crew received EICAS messages "ENG OIL FILT 2" and "ENG OIL TEMP" messages for engine #2 (CF6, inboard left hand). The crew worked the related checklists, shut the engine down, descended to FL330, declared emergency and decided to divert to East Midlands. The aircraft landed safely in East Midlands about 2:20 hours later.

The Canadian TSB reported a post flight inspection of the #2 engine revealed internal damage. A 3-engine ferry flight departing East Midlands about 30 hours after landing was conducted to the company's maintenance facility via Columbus,OH (USA) to Oscoda,MI (USA). The engine was replaced.

The aircraft returned to service on Jun 20th 2021.
