Qantas flightAn aircraft of Qantas Airways that was travelling from Los Angeles to Melbourne was compelled to return back to Los Angeles International Airport for an emergency landing. The incident was triggered by an engine mishap as per an official report.

 

Flight 94 had left LAX around 10.21 p.m. on Friday and returned to Los Angeles at 2.56 a.m. on Saturday, as revealed by FlightAware, the flight tracking website.

 

Thomas Woodward, the spokesman of Qantas told the media in a statement on Saturday that the Airbus A380 had experienced a certain loss of power in a certain engine out of its four engines and turned around.

 

He added that the pilots had adhered to a standard procedure, shut down the engine and thereafter the flight had landed normally in Los Angeles around 3 a.m. local time on Saturday.

 

The engineers are currently inspecting the airplane.
