‘Bird strike’ causes Virgin Australia flight from Brisbane to Perth to make emergency landing.

A Virgin Australia plane was left circling Brisbane Airport for over three hours last night after a “minor engineering issue”.


The VA474 Perth-bound flight was due to take off around 10pm last night when it was believed a bird collided with the plane. The pilot decided as a precautionary measure the flight should not continue. He circled the plane along the Queensland coast before returning to make an emergency landing at Brisbane shortly before 1am this morning, leaving passengers stranded.

Virgin Australia released a statement saying the incident was due to an engineering problem. However, the airline was questioned over its decision to circle the airport rather than proceed with the five-hour flight.
