A Martin Air Boeing 747-400 freighter, registration PH-CKA performing freight flight MP-7341 from Amsterdam (Netherlands) to Sao Paulo Viracopos,SP (Brazil) with 3 crew, was accelerating for takeoff from Amsterdam's runway 36L when the crew rejected takeoff at high speed (about 118 knots over ground) after they heard a loud bang from the cargo area. The aircraft slowed and stopped, emergency services were called to check the brakes indicating hot. The crew advised they were very heavy at about 410 tons, all their brakes were very warm. The left hand brakes began to cool some time later. The crew shut down all but the #1 engine (CF6, left outboard). Some time later the right hand brake temperatures also stopped to rise just before becoming critical (tyre deflation) and began to cool as well. The crew advised they had been at the limit for losing all tyres. A tow truck was dispatched, the crew shut the #1 engine down too and the aircraft was towed to the apron.

The aircraft remained on the ground for about 3 hours, then departed for the flight.

Emergency Services were told by tower, the crew had advised they rejected takeoff due to a bang from the cargo hold caused by some "omgevallen koffers" (toppled suitcases).
