A jet plane bound for Sydney, Australia out of San Francisco International Airport had to make an emergency landing early this morning after an engine malfunction engines, an airport duty manager said.
Qantas Airways Flight No. 74 departed SFO around 11:10 p.m. and had been in the air for about 45 minutes when the engine failure occurred, forcing the pilot to return to SFO to make an emergency landing, duty manager Chris Davison said.
The four-engine Boeing 747 was carrying 212 passengers when it safely made the emergency landing at 12:45 a.m. There were no injuries to anyone aboard the plane, Davison said.
“The airline is doing its best to reschedule those passengers,” Davison said. In the meantime, the passengers from Flight 74 are staying at area hotels.
Davison said the event was isolated and has not affected other travel in or out of SFO.
