American Airlines AA192 Plane Catches Fire At the Hong Kong Airport Tarmac


American Airlines today had to cancel flight AA192 that was scheduled to fly from Hong Kong to Los Angeles after one cargo pallet that was being loaded to plane caught fire.

The plane was parked at the gate and there are plenty of photos and video of the incident recorded by passengers.

Here are couple of photos that were posted on Twitter:


I am sure that everyone is happy that this happened while the pallet was being loaded to the plane and not while on the cruising altitude on the way to Los Angeles. Makes one wonder what could have happened and what was on that pallet…..

Let’s hope that American Airlines can get that air frame fixed/inspected soon so that there are no longer term issues with their schedules.
