A Perth flight bound for Singapore has been forced to attempt an emergency landing at Perth airport.
The Scoot 787 plane from Perth to Singapore was forced to make an emergency landing at around 8PM on Monday evening.
The pilot made the call to land the plane after the aircraft’s wheels began to overheat.
The overheating caused the wheels to become stuck which prevented them from being retracted.
