Default AirFrance A380 Uncontained Engine Failure

In what looks to be a similar accident to the Qantas A380 into Singapore, Air France enroute across the Atlantic has had an uncontained Engine Failure, although the wing seems to have been spared any impact damage. It is however not a RR Engine in question but a GP7270.

An Air France Airbus A380-800, registration F-HPJE performing flight AF-66 from Paris Charles de Gaulle (France) to Los Angeles,CA (USA), was enroute at FL370 about 200nm southeast of Nuuk (Greenland) when the fan and inlet of the #4 engine (GP7270, outboard right hand) separated from the engine. The crew descended the aircraft to FL310 and diverted to Goose Bay,NL (Canada) for a safe landing about 2 hours later. Emergency services reported hydraulic fluid leaking from the engine.

A runway inspection discovered debris on the arrival runway, which needed to be cleaned before the runway could be reopened.
