A United Boeing 767-400, registration N76055 performing flight UA-102 from Houston Intercontinental,TX (USA) to Munich (Germany) with 98 passengers and 13 crew, was enroute at FL370 about 160nm west of Shannon (Ireland) when the crew declared PAN reporting an engine (CF6) problem and decided to divert to Shannon (Ireland) advising the engine had been shut down. On approach ATC queried the crew to check their altitude reminding them of QNH 992 and advising the crew their aircraft was at 2000 feet, already below cleared altitude (about 15nm before touchdown), then followed up with the instruction "Stop descent!" The aircraft subsequently climbed by about 1500 feet and landed safely on Shannon's runway 06 about 30 minutes after leaving FL370. Fire crews and engineers attended to the left hand engine.
