(thanks AVH)

Audio not real crisp, but all ended well and a tow back to the gate, flight was cancelled.

A United Boeing 777-200, registration N787UA performing flight UA-71 from Amsterdam (Netherlands) to Newark,NJ (USA), was accelerating for takeoff from Amsterdam's runway 36L when the crew rejected takeoff at high speed (above 90 knots over ground) reporting smoke on board. The aircraft slowed safely and returned to the apron.

Netherland's Onderzoeksraad (DSB) have opened an investigation into the occurrence.
