Narrative:
Atlas Air's flight GTI/5Y4131 from Nagoya/Centrair, Japan to Everett, WA, USA, operated by a Boeing 747-400(LCF) Dreamlifter, returned to Centrair due to a flap warning message in the cockpit over the Pacific Ocean far east of Japan. The time of the incident happened is unclear, but it can be estimated c.a. 08 UTC (17 Japan Standard Time) by the Flightradar24.com data. The Dreamlifter made a safe landing at Nagoya at around 10:35 UTC (19:35 LT), after some fuel burning holding pattern circuits, without trouble on the flaps, which suggests a faulty message in question.
