Mango Mayday: Fruit causes emergency landing at Shannon
« on: June 30, 2015, 06:36:25 AM »
A Paris-bound Aeromexico 787 declared a Mayday and diverted to Dublin on Monday for what turned out to be a smoke alarm possibly triggered by a large cargo of mangoes. I found an article here:

The device I'm using makes it difficult to download the audio for editing, but you can listen to it in the archives under EINN Twr/Apprch. The emergency runs from about 1320 to at least 1410 Zulu, but it's pretty standard stuff. No mention of mangoes so far.

I imagine Boeing will be adjusting sensors on the next production run.
