A Delta Airlines Airbus A330-300, registration N806NW performing flight DL-163 from Amsterdam (Netherlands) to Minneapolis,MN (USA), was accelerating for takeoff from Amsterdam's runway 36L when the crew rejected takeoff at about 80 knots advising tower that no assistance was needed. Tower alerted emergency services advising the crew that there was smoke from the landing gear, crew guessing that smoke was just from the brakes, tower reporting it was too much smoke for that, they probably blew a tyre or so, this needed to be checked out. The crew of another aircraft confirmed a lot of smoke from the left main gear suggesting the left main gear brakes/wheels may have locked up. The aircraft vacated the runway and stopped on an adjacent taxiway where emergency services checked the aircraft.

A subsequent inspection found hydraulic fluid on the left side of the taxiway.

A replacement Airbus A330-300 registration N812NW reached Minneapolis with a delay of 3 hours.
