when in doubt C4
Should be more careful going round the corner near that fence post!
Bit of polish will sort that,
If those turbine blades had exited into the cabin rather than away from the cabin you would have had one A380 on the ground/sea in a million bits and everyone dead. :/
Very unusual. I am suprised other airlines have not grounded their A380's too. Guess that sums up other airlines commitment to safety....
Thats quite amazing hows its gone, did anyone watch a documentary a few months ago on BBC about Rolls Royce they were featuring engines used on planes and how they are made and tested and how they as part of testing blow them up, chuck stuff in them to make them explode to check they contain themselves and don't shred themselves etc was very impressive but cost millions to test!
My husband has been seconded to Sydney for 6 months and flew out last Saturday. He was supposed to be returning via Singapore on a Qantas A380 next Friday...
I have a feeling he won't be spending a week in the UK then
As I understand it, not all the A380s have Rolls Royce engines which is why some of the airlines are still flying.
john: i saw that documentary, it was amazing to be honest. showing how each blade is crafted, up to the testing and demolition of engines for safety testing.
best bit was most of that was at the rolls royce place right near our school
Hmmm, that must have been one fat pidgeon.....
My favourite bit, bottom left corner of the engine, you can clearly see a sign reminding not to put people in the Engine
Others including emirates dont use the rolls royce engines. You can get the A380 with Engine Alliance engines.Very unusual. I am suprised other airlines have not grounded their A380's too. Guess that sums up other airlines commitment to safety....
You would probably have had rapid decompression but the chances are it wouldn't have crashed. There have been many times aircraft survive.If those turbine blades had exited into the cabin rather than away from the cabin you would have had one A380 on the ground/sea in a million bits and everyone dead. :/
This one I think?
