A UPS United Parcel Service Boeing 767-300, registration N344UP (first flight in 2011) performing flight 5X-209 (dep Nov 17th) from Philadelphia,PA (USA) to Cologne (Germany) with 3 crew, was en route at FL330 over the Atlantic Ocean about 190nm west of Shannon (Ireland) when the crew declared emergency reporting they had needed to shut the right-hand engine (CF6) down due to low oil pressure. In response to the emergency declaration ATC queried “do you wish to continue lower”, the crew replied in the positive and was cleared to descend to FL210. The aircraft diverted to Shannon for a safe landing on runway 06 about 30 minutes after leaving FL330.
