From the Aviation Herald, 21.08.2008

The crew of a Condor Boeing 767-300, registration D-ABUE performing flight DE3315 from Mauritius (Mauritius) to Frankfurt/Main (Germany) with 265 passengers and 9 crew, declared emergency and diverted to Mombasa (Kenya), after the crew was forced to shut down one engine.

Shortly after takeoff the cabin crew had noticed abnormal vibrations. Later the flight crew observed an abnormal loss of fuel, not in line with fuel consumption by the engine, in one of the fuel tanks. As the problem could not be solved in contacts with maintenance in Germany, the crew was forced to shut the affected engine down and divert to Mombasa.

The passengers have been brought to hotels around Mombasa, while a replacement aircraft is expected at Mombasa tomorrow.
