Narrative:
The 767 was well on its way to Manila when a warning light came on showing a potential problem with the anti skid wet weather landing gear. The aeroplane returned to YSSY as thundery weather was forecasted for Manila. The 767 is now being inspected but it is not sure if there was an issue with the landing system or if the warning light was faulty.
