UAn Air Atlanta Icelandic plane was forced to return to New York airport, in the USA, after a horse got loose in the hold. The incident occurred on a flight to Belgium on Thursday.
“We are a cargo plane with a horse on board,” one of the pilots informed the control tower. “The horse is out of the box,” he added. According to the New York Post, flying would not be a problem, but the plane returned to New York as they were unable to “secure the horse again” during the flight.
To land, the Boeing 747 had to turn around to consume fuel and thus avoid loss of power. The riders requested help from a veterinarian because the horse was “in trouble.” However, it was not specified what the animal’s problem was.
The flight managed to take off again and arrive safely in Liège, Belgium.
