Wing problem grounds Sydney-bound Qantas flight
Melbourne: A Sydney-bound Qantas plane, carrying 214 people on board, was on Thursday forced to turn back to Melbourne due to a potential wing flap problem.
Flight QF430 took off from Melbourne Airport at 12.20 pm but then was reverted back to Melbourne after a cockpit indicator showed a potential problem with one of the plane`s wingflaps, according to reports.
Passengers initially stayed on board the Boeing 767 of the Australian airline after landing but were asked to disembark when the problem could not be rectified immediately.
The pilots had followed procedure and that passengers would be accommodated on alternative flights, Qantas spokesman Tom Woodward said, adding the airline hoped to get affected passengers onto flights by late this afternoon.
