Pilot Diverts Flight To Save Dog’s Life
Air Canada says one of its pilots diverted an international flight to ensure a dog could travel in safety.
The dog, identified in media reports as Simba, a French bulldog, was traveling in the cargo hold of a flight bound to Toronto from Tel Aviv.
The Toronto Star reports the unidentified pilot got an indicator that one of the heaters in the cargo hold had malfunctioned.
Any pilot who diverted an airliner to save a dog’s life is the kind of pilot I’d fly with anytime!
