A United Boeing 777-200, registration N794UA performing flight UA-869 from San Francisco,CA (USA) to Hong Kong (China), was descending towards Hong Kong when the crew reported a smoke indication on board prompting emergency services to deploy to their stand by positions. The aircraft continued for a safe landing on runway 07L. After a check by emergency services the aircraft taxied to the apron.

The aircraft remained on the ground for about 67 hours, then attempted to position back to San Francisco but had to reject takeoff at about 90 knots over ground due to the failure of the left hand engine (PW4090), which emitted a lot of smoke. The aircraft returned to the apron and is still on the ground about 41 hours after the rejected takeoff.
