Malaysia Airlines flight MH148 has made an emergency landing in Melbourne, Australia, after reporting a possible engine fire.

The passenger plane had just taken off from Melbourne for the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur.

Fire engines were on site but airport officials said it landed safely at 15:00 local time.

A spokeswoman for Airservices Australia, the government’s aviation safety body, said the plane had reported an “engine fire” alert in the cabin.

“The plane proceeded to dump the fuel and returned to land and it landed safely at the aviation rescue sites,” she told Reuters news agency.

Officials said this was standard procedure for an emergency landing.

Melbourne airport said it was operating normally.

Malaysia Airlines tweeted that the plane “made an air-turn back and landed uneventfully”.

The statement added: “The aircraft is being grounded for investigation.”


Lady Gaga is well used to turning heads with her crazy outfits, but there were two reason people were stopping and staring yesterday.

The singer’s assets were on full view as she made her way to the airport yesterday.

Oozing with the usual confidence, the superstar strutted around the Australian city unflustered by the fact she seemed to have forgotten half her outfit.

Wearing a decidedly I Dream Of Jeannie look, Lady Gaga looked magic in her high pony tail plunging bra, black velvet harem pants, gold-studded belts and trademark towering stilettos.

The matching black velvet cloak-come-jacket meanwhile wasn’t doing much to maintain her modesty, as she proudly displayed her cleavage.

Lady Gaga walked out of her hotel in Melbourne to say goodbye to fans, before stopping into the Flavour cafe and bar with her entourage for a coffee en route to the airport.

Next it was onto her private jet at Melbourne Airport to make her way to Perth for the final show in her Australian tour.

At this stage she was an old pro at handling those sky-high shoes, jumping out of the transfer vehicle without even a wobble.

Just before boarding the plane she seemed to consider for a moment if what she was wearing (or wasn’t wearing) was appropriate flying attire. But then she remembered who she was and continued on beaming.

Her fashion sense even seems to be rubbing of on her entourage, as one of her crew can be seen wearing an equally impressive set of red heels, although she’s clearly not allowed to have a pair as big the Lady’s.

After arriving in Perth, Lady Gaga headed straight for the Crown Metropol Hotel for a quick wardrobe change, where she exchanged bare arms for her bare torso – although she made sure her impressive cleavage was still on show.

She emerged shortly afterwards much to the delight of the Little Monsters who had gathered outside in the hopes of catching a glimpse.

Lady Gaga is now preparing for the final show of her Australian tour on Saturday night, having stormed through Auckland, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.

Thousands of fans have traveled from all over the country for the past month to catch her performances and her legendary wardrobe changes, one of which is a version of her famous meat dress.

Lady Gaga, 26, caused a stir in 2010 when she arrived at the MTV Video Music Awards completely draped in raw flesh. Although the new version doesn’t appear to be made out of real meat.

No stranger to controversy, she angers many with her use of religious icons and contentious issues such as animal rights in her costumes and performances.

Recently Lady Gaga has been displaying a slightly curvier figure as she shows off her stage get-ups.

One person who seems to prefer her new look over her famously toned body is boyfriend Taylor Kinney, whom she recently got back together with.

Following the Australian leg of her Born This Way Ball Tour, Lady Gaga will head to Europe in August where she will perform in Finland, Sweden and Germany as well as in the UK.

Ticket holders may well get to hear her new song Princess Die which she debuted at her Melbourne concert this week.

The song has outraged fans of the late Princess Diana, who believe the lyrics refer to her tragic death in 1997.
