An ANZ Air New Zealand Boeing 777-200, registration ZK-OKA performing flight NZ-296 from Auckland (New Zealand) to Apia (Samoa) with 293 people on board, was climbing out of Auckland's runway 23L when the crew stopped the climb at FL180 suspecting a hydraulic leak. The crew dumped fuel and returned the aircraft to Auckland for a safe landing on runway 23L about one hour after departure.

The airline reported the aircraft returned to Auckland after the crew detected an engineering issue shortly after departure. After landing hydraulic fluid dripped onto the hot brakes causing smoke, reports of the aircraft on fire were therefore mistaken.

The aircraft remained on the ground for about 5:15 hours, then departed again and reached Samoa with a delay of about 5.5 hours.
