A Boeing 717 aircraft operated by QantasLink had to make an emergency landing at Hobart International Airport due to fuel leak. According to the statements from QantasLink, Flight QF1507 from Melbourne was carrying 110 passengers on board.
The emergency landing and the events that followed after the landing were quite dramatic. The plane after landing was surrounded by specialist aviation firefighting truck. The aircraft turned at the end of the runway and was taxied back to the terminal.
Engineers were examining the aircraft to determine the cause of the flashing fuel light. The QantasLink spokeswoman said the pilot was alerted by a flashing fuel light and said the jet experienced a minor fuel leak towards the end of the flight.
The spokeswoman said the pilot had requested priority landing when the light started flashing. A priority landing request is made when a plane needs to land ahead of all other aircraft.
Passengers on the Jetstar flight were moved off the runway in record time to make room for the emergency.
