American Airlines Container Fire, Hong Kong

Monday, October 9, 2017
By George Hatcher

American Airlines Flight AA192 had a little bit of an issue while standing prior to takeoff Oct 9 2017, earlier today. As the Boeing 777 was being loaded, the container loader malfunctioned, resulting in a fire. The fire spread, and burned the cargo container. The plane was scheduled to fly from Hong Kong-Chek Lap Kok International Airport to LAX in Los Angeles. According to Flightradar24, the flight was cancelled. (I expect so!)
