A Boeing 767-300 aircraft operated by Air Canada Rouge, was conducting flight AC1901 from Athens-Eleftherios Venizelos Intl (LGAV), Greece to Toronto-Lester B. Pearson Intl (CYYZ), ON with 9 crew members and 189 passengers on board. Upon selection of initial thrust at the start of the takeoff phase on Runway 21L, the flight crew noted a slight yaw. As the engines spooled up to the selected thrust setting, an abnormal rumbling noise could be heard. Passing 80 KIAS, the right engine (General Electric CF6-80C2B6F) began to roll back and was unresponsive to thrust commands. The takeoff was rejected at 110 KIAS, the aircraft stopped on the runway and became disabled as 2 outboard main landing gear tires had blown. The flight crew declared a PAN PAN, and ARFF attended to the aircraft.
