Sydney-bound Qantas flight returns to Perth with engineering issue

Liam Bartlett

A Sydney-bound plane has been forced to turn back to Perth Airport.

The Qantas flight took off around 9.30 this morning – local time – and was around half an hour in when the pilot reported a technical issue.

Nine News Perth’s Jacqueline Robson told Gareth Parker the flight has since landed safely back in Perth.

Perth Glory CEO Tony Pignata was a passenger on the flight and says the Captain did an amazing job.

Qantas says the issue was due to a landing gear being unable to retract.
