ANA Boeing 767 makes emergency landing at Akita.

On February 20th, All Nippon Airways (NH/ANA) flight NH874, service from Akita (AXT/RJSK) to Tokyo/Haneda (HND/RJTT), reported white smoke in the cabin just a few minutes after takeoff around 0950 local time. Declaring emergency, the aircraft with 163 passengers and crew returned to the departure airport and made a safe landing 20 minutes later.

The aircraft involved was Boeing 767-381 JA8569, a domestic-configured B767 delivered to ANA on December 1st, 1993. According to passengers, white smoke came into the cabin through the vents soon after takeoff and "smelled like something was burning". Inspections on site revealed there was an oil leak in the number two engine. ANA and the Japan Civil Aviation Bureau (JCAB) are investigating the matter.
