The FIFO flight circles the city for 2 hours.

The plane carrying FIFO workers circled the Perth coast for nearly two hours after experiencing technical difficulties.

Perth Virgin flight VA9081 departed the city airport on Thursday at 7:15 AM AEST (9:15 AM AEST) for Boolgeeda Airport in the Pilbara mining area.

Boolgeeda Airport serves the employees of the Rio Tinto mining company.

The plane moved along the Jundalup coast in a circular motion at an altitude of 5000 feet.

Oddly enough, I kept doing this for almost two hours.

A Perth Airport spokesperson said the Fokker F100 aircraft was experiencing technical problems and had lost flap control, according to WA Today.

The plane landed at 9:19 AM AWST (11:19 AM AEST) and was welcomed by emergency services.
