An All Nippon Airways (ANA) flight from Tokyo experienced a hydraulic fluid leak while landing at Sapporo on 24 April 2024.

Video footage of the landing incident shows the aircraft emitting white smoke from one wing section. The incident reportedly occurred whilst the aircraft was in the landing roll on RWY 19L, New Chitose Airport (CTS).

The flight data for the service shows that flight NH71 made an on-time departure out of Tokyo at 1607 local time on 24 April.

The flight made a normal departure before setting course and climbing to flight level FL310 (31,000 feet) for Sapporo.

Descent and arrival procedures were all conducted normally, and the mechanical issue subsequently became evident during the landing procedure.

There was no fire evident during the incident, and no injuries were reported amongst the compliment of passengers and crew.

One of the airport runways was closed for a period following the incident, presumably to permit a runway inspection.
