Plane Returns to New York as Horse Escapes Onboard

A cargo plane departing from New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport had to make an unexpected turnaround shortly after takeoff when a horse got loose on board. In a recording of air traffic control communication, the pilots of the Air Atlanta Icelandic plane explained to JFK controllers that they needed to return to the airport because the horse was loose within the aircraft. One of the pilots stated in the recording, "The horse managed to escape his stall. We don't have a problem flying-wise, but we need to return back to New York; we cannot get the horse back secured."

Upon landing, a veterinarian was summoned to assess the condition of the horse. Once the necessary measures were taken, the flight to Liege, Belgium, eventually departed later in the day.
