A second Qantas plane made an emergency landing at Singapore, and was said to be due to engine trouble, as published at The Wall Street Journal on Friday.

According to the report, the second Qantas plane with flight QF6 made an emergency landing at the Changi airport.

“Shortly after takeoff, the aircraft operating at QF6 from Singapore to Sydney experienced an issue of one of its engines.” This was the supposed statement released by Qantas.

As a precautionary measure, Qantas added that ‘the aircraft landed safely a short time later without incident.’

The jumbo jet was said to have took off for about one hour and four minutes, before it was decided to return and make an emergency landing.

The said plane was a B747-400 aircraft that had 412 passengers, 3 flight crew and 16 cabin crew, which were all safe, according to the news.

And just like the first Qantas plane that made an emergency landing on Thursday, the root cause of the ‘engine failure’ is still under thorough investigation.

Meanwhile, the six Qantas Airbus A380 flights that were delayed earlier due to inspection has still no definite date and time of take off.
