Transport Safety Bureau investigates Jetstar landing

A JETSTAR flight into Cairns last week is being investigated by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau after an unstable approach to the runway.

The bureau was alerted to the incident when the early morning Airbus A321 flight from Melbourne to Cairns on September 3 had to cancel its landing and reposition for another approach.

The airliner, which seats about 215 passengers, was 800ft above the ground when the instability occurred.
