Qantas 747 makes emergency landing in Brisbane, Australia

Jun 24 2011

A 747 with 367 people on board made an emergency landing in Brisbane just before 7:00am this morning after a short circuit in a fan at the rear of the aircraft caused a burning odour to fill the cabin.

The pilot of QF16 inbound from Los Angeles called for emergency crews to be on standby. The aircraft landed safely and is undergoing repairs to the fan before its next scheduled departure later this morning.
