Remarks: "Water Dreaming" (Del 5/90) on Twy Alpha prior to departure off Rwy 34L as BA016 to Singapore and London with 270 passengers on board. The crew declared a "Mayday" just after take off with a fire reported in the forward cargo hold and made an emergency overweight landing on Rwy 34L about 20 minutes later. There were no injuries and only minor damage to the jet. The ATSB report into the incident identified the forward galley chiller boost fan as the cause of the small and localised fire.
Remarks: "Amazing Thailand" (Del 03/90) in a place you wouldn't usually see it here in Sydney, and probably won't ever again! Due to the closure of the main runway due to an emergency landing by a BA 747-400 the duty runway became 34R. Rwy 34R is 1524m shorter than the main runway (34L/16R) and 91m shorter than Rwy 25/07 however the prevailing winds allowed the heavies to use the shorter runway. TGJ is operating TG992 back to Bangkok in this shot.
