At 0812 eastern standard time on 18 August 2006, a Boeing Company 737-400 aircraft, registered VH-TJI, with a crew of 6 and 117 passengers departed Brisbane, Qld, on a scheduled passenger service to Sydney, NSW.
Climbing through flight level 150, the pilot in command noticed the number-1 engine oil pressure gauge was indicating low oil pressure.
Following the non-normal procedures checklist, the pilot in command shut-down the number-1 engine and returned the aircraft to Brisbane. There were no reported injuries.
A subsequent examination of the aircraft revealed the number-1 engine oil pressure indicator was unserviceable. The faulty oil pressure indicator was replaced and the aircraft was returned to service.
