The airlines cost savings could result in more low fares, aviation analysts say. Qantas yesterday announced it would shut the Victorian facility, which performs heavy maintenance on its fleet of 15 Boeing 747s, in March next year. Independent aviation consultant Bill Meeke said the de cision signalled a potentially positive shift for consumers. It was part of a drive to overhaul an ageing fleet with the introduction of the Airbus A380 and Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

Ms Azzopardi, 25, was found in a distressed state on a Dublin street almost a month ago and police initially feared she was a teenage victim of human trafficking. She was finally identified this week after an international appeal. It was subsequently revealed that Ms Azzopardi, who is originally from Sydney, was known to Australian police, had used false identities and had been found guilty of deception. She is expected to arrive in Australia at the weekend. Palmer defends spilling dam Clive Palmer CAIRNS: Federal MP Clive Palmer says a massive dam storing contaminated water at his Queensland nickel refinery is meeting environmental regulations after claims it is at risk of overflowing. The Australian newspaper reported a Department of Environment briefing note showed the Queensland Nickel Yabulu refinery near Townsville was operating outside spill risk limits because of a failure to increase its capacity. Mr Palmers managers have reportedly said the dams capacity cant be increased before the 2013-2014 wet season. Student hurt in lab explosion MELBOURNE: A university student has been taken to hospital following an explosion in a campus lab. The student, believed to be in his 20s, had been working in the chemical engineering research lab at the University of Melbourne when an explosion caused glass to shatter, cutting his hands. Paramedics took him to hospital while firefighters evacuated the building. The student is reported to be in a stable condition. Fire scare in Sydneys west SYDNEY: A fire threatened heavily populated areas in Sydney and caused smoke to billow over a motorway. An emergency warning for residents living along four streets at Kemps Creek, near Liverpool in the citys south west, was issued just after lunchtime yesterday as a grass fire approached residential properties. Some residents evacuated their homes as more than 250 firefighters worked to get the blaze under control.
