An All Nippon Airways 787 was grounded Wednesday after a problem with the plane’s brakes. It’s the latest in a series of problems for the Boeing Dreamliner.

Sky News reports brake parts on the rear left undercarriage needed replacing.

The flight was heading from Tokyo to Ube, Japan.

This is the third major problem for the 787 this week. A flight from Boston to Tokyo was delayed because of a fuel leak Tuesday. The problem involved a leaking refueling valve in the wing.

Another 787 flight on Monday, inbound from Tokyo to Boston, caught fire 15 minutes after the passengers and crew got off.
