    Strange smell forces Qantas jet back

    A mid-air scare has forced a Qantas jet carrying 133 passengers bound for Brisbane to turn back to Perth.

    The Boeing 767 was 30 minutes into its flight from Perth to Brisbane last night when a strange odour was detected, forcing it to turn around.

    A Qantas spokeswoman said she could not confirm if passengers and crew smelled something burning but added there were no visible signs of smoke.

    The crew followed safety procedures and turned Flight 594 back towards Perth, where it landed safely at approximately 7.30pm (WST).

    The spotlight has been on the airline since an exploding oxygen cylinder tore a hole through the fuselage of a Boeing 747-400, causing the cabin to depressurise en route from London to Melbourne on July 25.

    Over the ensuing eight days, Qantas planes suffered two more mid-air incidents, plus other ground-based problems.

    Seems they are jumping on everything that Qantas do at the moment.

    My mums flying to the US on monday but it doesn't make it any easier on the mind that this just turned out to be food burning in the oven.
