Fighter jet engine failure prompts emergency landing

An FA-18 Hornet has made an emergency landing at RAAF Base Williamtown, amid fears of engine failure.
The pilot requested to return to base just after 11am, when a warning light came on in the cockpit.

They meant, suspecting that the engine failure could occur following with the panel warnings.

Non event. Precautionary landings are a feature of powered flight.

I just assumed the OP was desperate to increase his/her post count. There can be no other reason for such a non-story about a complete non-event.

VERY slow news day in Williamtown.

I think this was a precautionary landing:










So this must have been a pre-precautionary landing:



Rule 1:




NO POOFTAHS!

Could be a subtle wink and a nudge about the fact the F35 only has one donk.
