A Cargolux Boeing 747-400 freighter, registration LX-UCV performing flight CV-7536 from Hong Kong (China) to Baku (Azerbaijan), was accelerating for takeoff from Hong Kong's runway 25R when the crew rejected takeoff at high speed due to an engine (RB211) problem. The aircraft slowed safely, vacated the runway via taxiway A6 about 2000 meters/6560 feet down the runway and stopped on the adjacent parallel taxiway. 4 main tyres deflated due to hot brakes and disabled the aircraft.

The aircraft was towed to the apron about 4.5 hours later.
