Singapore Air Cargo flight SQ-7108, from Adelaide Australia, to Kuala Lumpur was forced to divert to Bali Denpasar after smoke alarms went off, registering smoke in the cargo hold. The flight landed safely, and was boarded by fire crews who detected no heat, smoke, or fire. It appeared that the smoke was generated by the flatulence, and droppings of the 2,168 goats that were on board as cargo.

SIA stated that they were unable to confirm the cause of the smoke was from the goats, but that the aircraft was inspected on the ground, and no faults were found. It continued on to Kuala Lumpur and landed two hours late.


An aeroplane was forced to make an emergency landing after the gas of 2,186 animals was mistaken for smoke in the cargo hold.
The Singapore Airlines Boeing 747-400 freighter plane, which was en-route from Adelaide, Australia to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, was diverted to Bali Denpasar on October 26 following the urgent announcement.
Upon landing, emergency services boarded the aircraft - which was carrying four crew members and the flock of goats- however reported that there was no trace of fire, heat, or smoke.

Thanks. It's nice to be able to giggle a bit.

All this airline fear is getting to me. Suppose to fly down to Arizona this winter. With what is going on in the news, kinda makes me think I should wait til next year.

Just don't fly on a cargo plane. They might put sheep on that one and gas you.

Hmmm. Let's say a goat weighs 125 pounds. That's 271,000 pounds of goat. What's the MTOW of a 747-400?

We used to launch the E-4B, which is a -200 with improved engines at 810,000 lbs. The -400 improved on that, and went up to 875,000 lbs.

Fortunately none of them decided to but heads. It could have been explosive.

So at some point in their career the pilots must have screwed up and had the boss yelling at them "if you screw up one more time you'll be flying goats out of Kuala Lumpur "

Thanks for the laugh.

A Google search of "Goat fart joke" came up empty! However there is a couple of Youtube videos of farting goats.

Can't believe with everything and anything on the internet nobody has came up with a goat fart joke, I feel bitterly disappointed.

Too many goats.

I think the high humidity created by the goats' breathing, flatulence, defecation and urination caused the smoke detectors to present a false alarm. Ionization type smoke detectors are susceptible to false alarms in high moisture environments.

The 747-400 cargo plane is capable of carrying 39 pallets 8ft x 10ft. Assuming the crates are stacked 2 high, that gives 78 crates.

2186 goats in 78 crates is 28 goats per crate. Given 80 square feet per crate, each goat has about 2.9 sf of floor space.

So each goat has a space about 1 foot wide, 3 feet long, and 4 feet high. And that assumes that there is no air circulation space between pallets.

I don't think these conditions meet Boeing's specifications for live animal transportation.

Sorry I couldn't come up with any good goat flatulence jokes.
