Malfunction Forces Plane Back To Perth

A Sydney-bound flight has returned to Perth shortly after take-off due to a problem with its landing gear.

The pilot of Qantas flight QF547 contacted air traffic control just after 5.15am on Wednesday to report the problem before turning around and safely landing the aircraft.

A Qantas spokeswoman says a replacement plane was arranged for passengers as mechanics worked on the grounded jet.
