A perfect fit for Airbus

03-2013

On November 4, 2010, one of Qantas Airbus A380s, heading for Sydney, Australia, suffered engine failure over Batam Island shortly after take-off from Changi Airport in Singapore. In spite of the exploded and still burning engine, captain Richard Champion de Crespigny was able to land the plane safely back in Singapore, with 440 passengers and 29 crew members still shaken and scared, but all safe and sound.
