ANZ B772 at Auckland on Aug 20th 2016, hydraulic leak
Last Update: August 20, 2016 / 15:59:51 GMT/Zulu time
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.
