On July 20th, a UPS Boeing 747 freighter (N624UP) from Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) to Dubai International Airport (DXB) headed back to Hong Kong Airport after crew members reportedly received a fire warning on one of the aircraft's engines.

After a 40-minute flight, the aircraft landed safely in Hong Kong at 12:57 pm (CST). The fire truck sprayed foam to put out the fire on one of its left engines. The UPS flight crew members landed safely, and the aircraft is still on the ground without major damage after the incident occurred last Tuesday (20).
