Varig MD-11 Fuel Leak

Mon Oct 10, 2005 2:04 pm

My friend was at LAX today and told me that a Varig MD-11 landed with a fuel leak.... that it had known about when it took off from Brazil. ANd then it later took off to Tokyo with the fuel leak.

I personally find the story some what suspicious, but does anyone happen to have any details about the flight if it indeed is true?
