An Atlas Air Boeing 747-400 freighter, registration N429MC performing flight 5Y-8692 from Seoul (South Korea) to Anchorage,AK (USA), departed Seoul Incheon's runway 16L but stopped the climb at 10,000 feet due to a hydraulic failure. The aircraft entered a hold at 7000 feet to dump fuel and returned to Seoul for a landing on runway 15R without further incident about 90 minutes after departure. Three tyres of the left body gear were damaged, the aircraft was disabled on the runway.

The aircraft had already suffered tyre damage on the left body gear 9 days earlier, see Incident: Atlas B744 at Los Angeles on Jun 2nd 2024, tyre damage.

The aircraft had diverted to Seoul the day before on Jun 10th 2024 for so far unknown reasons on its flight from Hong Kong (China) to Anchorage.

On Jun 13th 2024 The Aviation Herald learned that upon rotation for departure from Seoul the treads of two tyres separated cutting a hydraulic line. As result hydraulic system #1 was lost prompting the return to Seoul. On landing a third tyre blew.
