Qantas never crash right? Terrified passengers on a Qantas flight this week reportedly started texting loved ones goodbye after the engine made a massive bang. The Boeing 717 plane QF1799 took off from Alice Springs at 2.30pm on 10 March).
According to a passenger, the bang caused the plane to shake violently, shortly before landing at Brisbane airport. Qantas did not make a big deal about the incident but one passenger claimed that passengers were sending goodbye messages to loved ones and that the crew reportedly briefed one man on how to operate the emergency door on the aircraft.
A Qantas spokeswoman told The Courier-Mail that the aircraft didn’t need to make an emergency landing but was given a priority landing at the airport. “The pilots followed standard procedure, shut down the engine, and the flight landed normally”
Relieved passengers cheered the Qantas crew after the landing.
