On 8 August, a Western Global Airlines McDonnell Douglas MD-11F (registered N799JN) operated a cargo flight between Brussels, Belgium and Miami, United States. The aircraft, however, encountered a technical issue with its flaps. 

After take-off, the MD-11F leveled off at 14,000 feet and headed to the North Sea to dump fuel. Subsequently, the aircraft returned to Brussels Airport for a safe landing.

The day before, the aircraft taxied to the runway but returned to the gate, indicating a technical issue with the aircraft.

The aircraft is still parked on the apron at moment of writing.
