A Vietnam Airlines aircraft on Thursday had to return to Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City 30 minutes after takeoff due to a technical error, the online newspaper Dan Tri reported.

The Airbus aircraft took off from HCMC headed for Quy Nhon and returned to Tan Son Nhat around 7:07 a.m. after cabin crew noticed the hydraulic pressure was too low.

Eighty-seven passengers were served breakfast at the airport.

They resumed their journey aboard another aircraft at 10:17 a.m. the same day.

On Thursday afternoon Vietnam Airlines announced it had fixed the problem on the Airbus aircraft.

One day earlier, another Vietnam Airlines aircraft carrying 50 passengers from Da Nang to Hai Phong could not land on the Cat Bi International Airport after the cabin crew received a warning that there was an "unidentified object" on the terminal.

The plane had to circle the airport anxiously as authorities handled the problem.

The "unidentified object" turned out to be a buffalo.

After security guards brought the buffalo out of the airport, the plane landed safely.

Airport authorities said they are still investigating who owned the buffalo and how it had penetrated the airport's perimeter.
