Rex AirlinesA Rex Airlines flight bound for Sydney was forced to return to Dubbo after the crew shut down an engine due to a high temperature reading.

 

The pilot was forced to shut the engine down after a warning light came on about 10:10 am, due to temperature issue.

 

The Regional Express Saab 340, carrying 23 passengers made a safe emergency landing. Civil Aviation Safety Authority spokesman Peter Gibson, told the media that the right-hand engine issue was “totally unrelated” to the plane’s propeller assembly.

 

Mr. Gibson said that during Thursday’s flight, the crew ‘had an indication of high engine temperature on the right-hand engine so it was shut down and they returned to Dubbo.

 

None of the passengers or crew members were injured during the emergency landing. The crew of the Saab 340 said the propeller assembly had ‘dislodged’, Civil Aviation Safety Authority spokesman Peter Gibson told the media, while photographs of the plane on the ground show the right propeller had fallen off entirely.
