Singapore Airlines plane headed to Hong Kong from Changi turned back after cargo door problems

Posted: 09 May 2014 05:04 AM PDT

SINGAPORE: A Singapore Airlines (SIA) plane to Hong Kong was turned back mid-flight after a cargo door warning light was triggered.

Flight SQ866, an Airbus A380 superjumbo, "was en route from Singapore to Hong Kong when there was a warning light that came on with regards to the cargo door, so the pilot decided to turn back to Singapore," said an SIA spokesman told The Straits Times on Friday.

The cargo door, however, was found closed when the plane landed safely back in Changi at 2:20 p.m. local time, added the spokesman. No one was hurt, and investigations into why the alarm was set off are ongoing.

A replacement aircraft with the same crew took off at 5:18pm, and is expected to arrive in Hong Kong at 8:40 p.m., more than three and a half hours after the original scheduled arrival time. - ANN/Straits Times

Japan to export robot cat Doraemon to US

Posted: 09 May 2014 12:53 AM PDT

TOKYO, May 09, 2014 (AFP) - One of Japan's most popular cartoon creations, Doraemon, a robot cat from the future with a magic pocket and a portal to anywhere, is to make his debut on US TV this year, officials said Friday.

TV Asahi, which partially owns the rights to the character, has reached an agreement with Disney to air a version dubbed into English, said a spokeswoman with the Japanese broadcaster.

The cartoon has been broadcast in Japan for decades and has captivated children across Asia, but it will be his first foray in English into the American market, she said.

The US media giant is to air 26 episodes of the animation, amending storylines, character names and gadgets to suit US viewing tastes.

Doraemon, a dumpy blue feline with a round head, was sent back in time from the 22nd century by a young boy who wanted to change his family's fortunes.

His magic pocket provides an endless supply of fantastical gadgets that help his young friend Nobita Nobi navigate the trials of everyday life.

Created by artist Fujiko F. Fujio, the character first appeared in manga strips in 1969, making the transition to small and big screen over the following decades.

Doraemon remains enormously popular in Japan, serving as an instantly recognisable cultural reference across generations.
