An Air Canada Boeing 787-9, registration C-FGDZ performing flight AC-856 from London Heathrow,EN (UK) to Mumbai (India), was climbing out of London Heathrow's runway 09R when the crew stopped the climb at FL180 and decided to return to Heathrow. The aircraft entered a hold and landed safely back on Heathrow's runway 09L about 90 minutes after departure.

The airline reported the aircraft returned as a precaution after it was discovered two tyres were flat. The tyres were replaced and the aircraft returned to service.

The remainder of the flight was cancelled as was the return leg AC-855 Mumbai to London the following day.

The aircraft remained on the ground in London for about 24 hours, then returned to service.

On Jan 23rd 2024 the Canadian TSB reported: "On departure, EGLL tower advised that smoke was observed from C-FGDZ. Aircraft was showing brake 5 fault and zero pressure on that tire.
