SYDNEY — A bird and a bolt of lighting were the latest problems to strike Qantas, the airline said Wednesday, causing the fourth flight turnaround since an engine blowout on one of its Airbus superjumbos caused a global safety scare.

A Boeing 747 carrying 171 passengers bound for Sydney turned back to Johannesburg after a bird slammed into one of the jumbo's four engines shortly after takeoff late Tuesday, Qantas spokesman Tom Woodward said. It landed safely.
