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.

Of course, back in the good old days of swapping paint, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
 
I think this was a precautionary landing:

So this must have been a pre-precautionary landing:

It's Mil and it's Aviation and it falls into rumour and news so why not?

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

Evidently, they do not :-)

I feel a song coming on......."Scares, I've had a few, but then again, too few to mention.....those warning lights and bells, never fail to grab attention....." :}
