"Water Dreaming" (Del 5/90) close up of the nose after departing 15 or so minutes before as BA016 to London via Singapore. On departure the crew were alerted to a fire in the forward cargo hold which required an emergency return to Sydney. At 1622 local time the 747-400 touched down on Rwy 34L and rolled all the way to the end where the engines were shut down and the passengers evacuated. Upon further inspection it was found that there had indeed been a small fire in the forward hold.
