Plane makes emergency landing at Adelaide Airport

From the Daily Fail:

A plane has made an emergency landing at Adelaide Airport after smoke was seen billowing from its engine.

The private charter plane was forced to land about 8.40am shortly after taking off on Friday, the Advertiser reported.

Smoke was seen coming from the twin engine aircraft by an air traffic controller who told the pilot to turn back.

The plane landed shortly afterwards.

Couldn't have been any thing too major as apparently it was back in the air again this afternoon.

If that's the case perhaps we'll see the crew at Jabba's ENGINE MANAGEMENT SEMINAR in Redcliffe in early March.

Was told that by another pilot on the ground at YPAD who saw it. So are you saying he was seeing things?

The Captain decides what to do in an emergency, ATC is advisory.
