Proppies, I was going to ask the same thing. That discharge looks like the point where fuel would be dumped from? So maybe a problem with a switch on the ground perhaps.
Possibly a fuel dump valve opened inadvertently or by some technical problem. Another stronger possibility is the "overflow", actually a surge tank at the wingtip to capture excess fuel, may have had fuel in it.
