ADMIN posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogSYDNEY: Two international Qantas flights suffered mid-air mechanical problems Friday and had to turn back to Sydney, with one unable to retract wing flaps and another suffering a cracked window pane, the Australian carrier said. Flight QF7 was enroute to Dallas, but the Airbus A380´s captain decided to head back to Sydney after discovering the wing flaps could not be retracted. "(This) means the aircraft can´t fly efficiently. As the Dallas flight is our longest on the network, the captain made the decision to return to Sydney," Qantas said in a statement. The second flight, QF63 to Johannesburg, returned when "a cracked pane of glass on the aircraft windscreen" was found. "An aircraft windscreen is made up of three layers of glass, the outer pane had cracked but did not compromise the integrity of the aircraft," the statement added. "The aircraft was safe to continue to Johannesburg but the captain made the decision to return as the windscreen will be replaced at Qantas´ engineering base in Sydney." Qantas said the Boeing 747-400 landed safely. Replacement flights were being arranged for passengers. Several flights have had to return to Australia in recent months, including an AirAsia Gold Coast to Kuala Lumpur service last month that the carrier said involved a suspected bird strike. In June, a China Eastern plane bound for Shanghai made an emergency landing in Sydney after a huge hole appeared in one of its engine casings.
waqas dar posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogPERTH: Qantas Airways Ltd Chief Executive Alan Joyce proved he was no cream puff on Tuesday, keeping his cool after a man smeared a cream pie in his face during a business breakfast in Australia's west. Joyce, the head of Australia's flag carrier, was speaking at the event in Perth, capital of Western Australia state, when a man in a business suit walked onto the stage, reached around to rub the pie in his face, and calmly walked away, 7 News television showed. The unidentified man's motive was unclear but he was soon apprehended by security guards. State police later confirmed that officers had been called to an assault at a Perth hotel and that one person was in custody. Joyce at first appeared stunned by the incident but quickly regained his composure to tell the audience he did not know why he had been targeted, Australian media reported, before leaving the stage to clean up. He later told reporters he had been unable to identify what flavor pie he had been hit with. "My issue is I need a good dry cleaner before I leave Perth, so if you have one, please recommend it to me," he said. Long a slapstick comedy favorite, the pie-in-the-face routine has also developed as a form of political protest. News Corp boss Rupert Murdoch was famously hit in the face with a pie while he testified before a British parliamentary inquiry into a phone-hacking scandal in 2011.
