Narrative:
An Endeavor Air, Bombardier CRJ200, N8986B, equipped with two General Electric CF34-3B1 turbofan engines, experienced a No. 2 engine fan blade separation during initial climb from Baltimore-Washington International Airport (BWI) - Baltimore, Maryland. The crew reported hearing a loud bang from the back of the airplane immediately followed by increased vibration, a turbine inlet temperature warning indication, and a No.2 engine thrust reverser indication. The crew declared an emergency, shut down the No. 2 engine, and returned to BWI where they made an uneventful landing.
There were no injuries to the passengers or crew.

Maintenance crews inspected the No. 2 engine at the gate at BWI and reported: one fan blade had separated, both fan cowl halves were separated and missing, and the core cowl exhibited impact marks.
