JetstarJetstar flight JQ117 had to make an emergency landing at Perth airport in Australia, on October 16.

The plane was flying from Denpasar, Indonesia, when the crew reported a brake failure indication and requested a ‘clear runway, for an emergency landing.’

According to the airline, “Air traffic control asked the captain to conduct a holding pattern until the runway could be cleared for landing… Following a short period of holding, the captain landed the aircraft safely…. There was no issue with the aircraft braking system during the landing.”

None of the 181 people aboard were injured.
