I just spoke to my boss who was supposed to fly PER-SYD on VH-ZXC and he's been turned away and gone back to his hotel, no indication of when he'll be able to get a flight back to Sydney.

Ah well, it looks like a BFW (boss free week) hehe

The news in Hong Kong is correct though:

Qantas jet hits turbulence: 30 hurt

07-10-2008


More than 30 people have been injured on a Qantas airliner which was hit by turbulence on a flight from Singapore to Perth. Some of those hurt suffered broken bones and cuts. The A330-300, with 303 passengers and 10 crew, was forced to make an emergency landing at Learmonth, a remote airport near the town of Exmouth, about 1,100km north of Perth.

The Daily Telegraph have still got the aircraft as being an Airbus A380. Utterly hopeless reporting.

The quality of the reporting, or inherent lack of, IS the incident....

It doesnt matter what a/c type the media say it is. The news to the public is a Qantas plane had to make a emergency landing with injured people on it. Every single incident we get the same "The media said 767 but it was a 737" posts. Get used to it!

TV news & online media is no different to newspapers if you believe everything you read on any subject you are silly.

Cheers

Tim

well said Timba, how about we focus on the incident rather than the way the media is reporting it.

Isn't "lotterywest" a rather unfortunate logo to feature on the back of the Exmouth ambulance?
