A cargo jet en route from New York to Belgium had to turn back after a horse escaped in the hold. The Air Atlanta Icelandic Boeing 747, carrying the equine passenger, landed back at JFK Airport. The horse had freed itself within 30 minutes of takeoff, prompting the need for a return to New York. The pilot, citing the weight issue, had to dump 20 tonnes of fuel before the safe landing. Despite the unexpected equine escapade, the flight later resumed and reached Liege Airport. Travelers are advised to double-check luggage before boarding.
