Heard a QF A330 reporting locked brakes yesterday in MEL with the aircraft met by the fire crew shortly after.
Saw some pretty big skid marks around/past the rapid exit line on RWY 34. Are they still there?
There was also reports of debris found on the runway.

Another A330 in HK had a similar issue in HKG last week, turned out to be a faulty Anti Skid system.........
This isn't the first A330 to have this issue.
Another good one is not being able to release the Park Brake before TO!!

Maybe they were testing the new A350 Brake to Vacate feature!! (BTV )

I'm sure a few on board "vacated" :}:}
Thought I'd get in before it goes click...

If they "vacated" surely they would be saved by the "anti-skid"...

Is that a real photo?

That is unusual brake wear indeed! :}

Incorrect use of brake fans would be my guess !
