They say it might take quite awhile before they try to land. Will be difficult probably. I pray there's no fireball.

I was on a full 767 which had to dump and return to EGLL.  We circled for 5 hours burning off fuel after they dumped the center tanks...

Does a 763 have a fuel dump or are they burning?

Center tanks only.  That's the big issue, even after they dump the centers they are well overweight

Probably not as concerned with weight as reducing fire hazard. They would have have fuel upon arrival for safe landing weight i would think. ?

Fire hazard is no factor (with the gear down). You usually try to get the landing weight down as much as possible. 

I've also had to dump once on the 767-300ER and you simply land overweight.

Here they go. Must have been faulty indicator. Gear down and locked.

Those grand old 767's are spending more and more time in maintenance these days. This is one of 5 left for Air Canada while they are waiting for new A330's to replace them this year. I do love them but they are showing their age now.

Edit: I just read a report it was a tire rupture and an engine issue on takeoff

No gear malfunction whatsoever. The Aviation Herald is reporting engine number 1 shutdown after suffering multiple compressor stalls after takeoff and tire burst on departure. Remarkably detailed report in this article given it only just landed. There are photos of flames coming out of the engine and a fighter jet inspecting the 767 mid-air.

I can't believe the comments on YouTube about this. Obviously never flown before if they wish it to crash. Glad it ended safely.
