United made an emergency landing at Newark after sparks were observed


(I've attached the initial report audio)

The aircraft performing flight #UA149 from Newark to Sao Paulo was seen with sparks coming from the landing gear compartiment on takeoff from runway 22L.  The Boeing 777-200ER (reg. N787UA) climbed to 24,000ft over the sea and started to dump fuel in order to loose weight.

Pilots reported a problem with hydraulics, causing sparks and falling debris.

The flight returned to Newark Airport for a safe landing 1h30 later
