Australian Media is reporting that a QF 747 en-route from Sydney to Singapore has landed safely in Darwin after declaring emergency.

Strange odour apparently.

VH-OJC is the aircraft in question.

Video on this link shows damage aft of the rudder. Thought it could have been an APU fire but the APU is whistling away happily in the video report.

Glad to hear everyone got off safely.

EDIT: Just heard on ABC Radio that it was something to do with an air cooler (sorry didn't quite catch it) but engineers have given the plane the all clear and it is due to depart for SIN at 7pm tonight.

I was at YSSY yesterday when OJC was towed to the gate (pictured) before the incident. Does anyone know if the OJ series is being scrapped at their upcoming D checks?

Ah thanks for that. Out of curiosity, where did you find that out?

Wow, I'm surprised the media didn't blow the story out proportion...

Happy to hear the aircraft was given okay to fly...

I beg your pardon for my ignorance, Auchmithie: Are these RR:ed or GE:ed?

Best,

I use planespotters.net -- I'm sure there are also others out there which give detailed fleet breakdowns.
