Air New Zealand Emergency Landing At AKL

''An Air New Zealand Boeing 767 bound for Honolulu was forced to make an air interruption on Thursday and return to Auckland after the crew noticed the flaps on one of the wings did not fully retract after takeoff. The aircraft landed safely just before 1500''

Ok there Jetdeltamsy, a bit off topic, well way off topic. Does any one know if the 767 flaps are individually controlled or did this say, rip a hole in the a/c or anything like that or is it possible to purposely put one up and the other down. My best guess would be hydraulic issues.

According to this NZ Herald article, the problem sounds like a faulty flap position sensor, as opposed to any actual fault with the flap.

I heard it on the news over here. No one was injured and the flight eventually took off something like three or four hours later. They turned back at about 240km from NZAA/AKL and had to dump fuel along the way. No lives were in any danger at anytime, and the passengers saftey was also in no danger according to NZ.

I don't care, and I'm sure others don't either! We want to know what happened!

I can confirm that this correct. We changed the sensor overnight, ops tested OK after that.
