A Quantas 747 with 274 passengers on board had to divert back to Australia when flames were seen flowing from one of the engines.

The plane on its way to Los Angeles had its engine shut down immediately and an airline spokesman later said that nobody onboard had been in any danger.

Problems started ten minutes after take off where flames were seen to be coming from the engine by local residents. An hour or so later the aircraft landed safely back at Sydney airport.

A replacement flight had been reorganised to depart late Saturday, alternatively passengers were offered other flights.
