Whoa III: Another Qantas Emergency

What in the world is going on at Qantas, which has rightfully billed itself as one of the world's safest airlines, based on its record.

Days after a Qantas 747 made an emergency landing in Manila with a gaping 9-foot hole in its fuselage, another Qantas flight, this one a 737, made an emergency landing today at Adelaide. A wheel-bay door apparently either opened in flight or (more likely) failed to close after takeoff.

Here's the story from the Herald-Sun in Melbourne.
