AIPA statement on QF144


“This type of incident is extremely rare. We are pleased the expertly trained and professional Qantas pilots took all the right steps to deal with the incident and were able to safely land back in Sydney.

“The priority of any pilot is the welfare of our passengers and crew.

“It’s too early to speculate on the cause of the engine failure.”

AIPA will not be commenting further tonight. AIPA Vice President and Qantas First Officer Mark Hofmeyer is available
