Narrative:Flight NM5015/NZ5015 had to return to Wellington Airport, New Zealand after a cockpit indication forced the crew to shut down engine nr.2. Passengers reported that the right engine was hit by "something" followed by a loud bang, then smoke appeared in the cabin of the airplane. Air New Zealand said that the investigation is still under way, however a bird strike can already be ruled out.
