A United Boeing 767-300, registration N648UA performing freight flight UA-2831 from Hong Kong (China) to Guam (Guam), was climbing out of Hong Kong's runway 07R when the crew stopped the climb at 6000 feet due to the right hand engine (PW4060) emitting several streaks of flames. The aircraft returned to Hong Kong for a safe landing on runway 07L about 50 minutes after departure.

The aircraft is still on the ground in Hong Kong about 15 hours after landing back.

Hong Kong's Fire department reported the aircraft returned after a report of engine problems. No smoke or flames were observed when the aircraft landed.

Hong Kong's CAD reported the aircraft returned to Hong Kong due to a suspected problem with the engine systems.

The airline reported the aircraft returned due to a "mechanical problem".
