"We request an engine full inspection for any leaks before continue taxiing."

Here is the ATC audio with animation showing AF66 approach, landing and taxi at Goose Bay after the front fell off of their engine. The headline was their request after tower tells them that the safety crew was picking up parts of the cowling off of the runway. For clarification, subtitles in blue are other aircraft, yellow is tower and green is AF66. Apparently Super is the designation for the A380 since Heavy is just not quite enough. It took me to the end of the video to figure out that it was “AF66 Super, mayday”, and not a “super mayday”.
