Reports just coming in of another QF incident described as some kind of hydraulic failure.

What's your source for this info?
The info I have is that QF29 dep HKG 22 min late (08:22) and arrived at LHR 29 min late (13:59)

I don't think that dropping 7 mins on a 13h30 sector is classed as an emergency

QF 29 declared emergency landing into lhr in order to receive priority landing clearance due to hydraulic failure.
Allegedly.

Olivia will probably suggest:

" it's a new initiative to boost on time arrivals so that the a/c can be turned around more quickly enabling it get back to Avalon during day shift so that we do not have to pay those horrible Australian engineers any overtime"

or

" it's total speculation that it was a Qantas plane.....there are lots of planes landing at Heathrow with red tails.....

(no wonder Joe Hockey was glad to see her move on)

Ummmmm.
Sounds suspiciously like a recent sim exercise.

Maybe the media even report on them now!

(Scene: The terminal coffee shop:
Pilot 1: Yeah did it yesterday. We had a HYD PRESS SYS 1 message going into LHR.
Pilot 2: Wadidja do?....
And you can read about the rest in this morning's paper....)

Qantas keeps making headlines – Plane Talking

"a routine warning light indication of a hydraulic malfunction on QF29, another Boeing 744, as it approached London Heathrow, where it was met by emergency equipment in a standard response and which was not needed"

I suppose at QANTAS malfunctions are becoming routine.......

Also VH-OJU copped a bird strike out of JHB today. The leprechaun must feel like he killed a Chinaman. Even Dixon didn't have this much bad luck in so short a time. When it rains, it pours.

come on...bird strikes would happen every day of the week around the QF network...that is hardly a rare occurrence...there is a lot of crap flying around at this time from some people on this forum...
