When the F70 was pushed back from its stand a trail of fluid was detected from the right-hand engine. Inspection revealed a leaking pair of seals between a rigid fuel line and the fuel flow regulator. After repair the aircraft could depart normally. The Australian Transport Safety Board considered it extremely unlikely that a fire would develop from this leak due to the design of fuel lines and discontinued its investigation.
