Qantaslink return to Sydney

I love how the media describe it as the "undercarriage" overheating! Priceless!
From news.com.au

A QANTAS plane has been forced to make an emergency landing at Sydney Airport after the undercarriage overheated.
The QantasLink flight, which was travelling from Sydney to Lord Howe Island, was forced to return to Sydney "due to a technical issue with the air-conditioning system", a spokeswoman for the airline said.

The plane landed at 1.47pm (AEDT) and ambulance crews assessed about 50 passengers for dehydration.

Passengers and crew were treated for heat exposure at the airport and two passengers were taken to hospital, the Qantas spokeswoman said,

An ambulance spokesman said paramedics were called to the airport around 1.30pm today after "reports the temperature inside was quite high,'' he said.

A spokeswoman for Sydney Airport confirmed a Qantas aircraft landed there this afternoon but would not give any further details.

''I can confirm that there was a Qantas aircraft that landed,'' she said.

Happened a couple of times on the Metro too.

The only thing you could do to stop it was shut down the offending engine.

The conquest used unregulated hot bleed air for emergency pressurisation. Can't say I'd be to keen to use it!
