Fuel coming out of a 777 jettison pipe during takeoff?!

Recommended Posts

HelloI was on a 777-200 recently, and I noticed something unusual. When the engines spooled-up for takeoff, I saw approximatley ten liters of fuel coming out of the jettison pipe, located on the left wing. Is this some kind of overflow mechanism?:)

I think you might have seen either a vortex or the fuel was leaking out due to expansion when it heated up.
