Air India B773 near Bucharest on May 12th 2012, Mangos cause cargo smoke indication
Last Update: May 13, 2012 / 14:38:33 GMT/Zulu time
The airline initially suspected a faulty smoke detector produced a false alert, an examination later revealed a load of Mangos in the cargo bay. The reasons for the fumes setting off the smoke detector probably were chemicals used to ripen the fruits, the airline explained.
The aircraft departed Bucharest 28 hours after landing and reached Frankfurt with a delay of 29 hours.
