Boeing 767-300ER, V8-RBH
During the takeoff run the aircrew noticed that a BRAKE TEMP warning light was illuminated. The Status page showed that the temperature of the No 1 brake was rapidly increasing. The takeoff was rejected at around 90-100 kt and the aircraft was successfully stopped and turned off the runway. The passengers disembarked normally. The No 1 wheel hub was found to have failed. The heat and mechanical damage to the hub was such that it was not possible to determine the precise cause of the failure.
