The Atlas Air Boeing 747 en route from Everett to Japan had taken off when the hydraulics failed. When the nose gear doors failed, pilots did a fly by and returned to the airport.
The 747 is retrofitted to carry Dreamliner parts, and dubbed a “dreamlifter.”
The flight departed from Paine Field at 3 pm.
The flight made a safe landing.
