A Qantas airliner has been forced to turn back to Sydney after its de-icing equipment failed mid-air.
Flight QF922 left for Cairns at 10.35am (AEST) on Sunday and was forced to turn around about 90 minutes into the flight, a Qantas spokeswoman said.
The plane’s de-icing equipment failed, prompting the captain to turn the 737-800 around and land at Sydney Airport at 1.46pm."We had a minor technical fault with one of our aircraft which affects the icing equipment," the spokeswoman said.
"It was inadvisable to operate the aircraft in the icy conditions.
"Under normal fine-weather conditions, it would not affect the operation of the aircraft."
After landing, the affected passengers were transferred to another plane, the spokeswoman said. It was scheduled to leave for Cairns on Sunday afternoon.
