Qantas passengers used emergency slides to evacuate a plane after it was forced to return to Sydney Airport following a “hydraulic issue”.
The Sydney to Perth flight QF575, which carries up to 271 passengers, departed just before 8:30am on Sunday.
About 30 minutes into the flight, the captain announced the plane had to turn around due to mid-flight hydraulic issues.
Passengers told the ABC the plane was stuck on the tarmac after landing when what appeared to be smoke began to fill the cabin.
