A Delta Airlines Boeing 767-300, registration N175DN performing flight DL-75 from Milan Malpensa (Italy) to Atlanta,GA (USA) with 220 people on board, was enroute at FL320 over the Atlantic Ocean about 30 minutes into the crossing and about 300nm northwest of Shannon (Ireland) when the crew reported the failure of the right hand engine (PW4060), turned the aircraft around and diverted to Shannon while drifting down and dumping fuel. The aircraft landed safely on Shannon's runway 24 about an hour later and stopped on the runway, the crew requested emergency service to check for any smoke emanating from the right hand engine. No smoke was reported, the aircraft subsequently taxied to the apron, where passengers disembarked normally.

A replacement Boeing 767-300 registration N172DZ was dispatched from New York's JFK Airport to Shannon as flight DL-9933, and continued the flight to Atlanta as DL-9856 and is estimated to reach Atlanta with a delay of 27 hours.
