Great that they're getting Nancy Bird Walton, aka VH-OQA back in to service. Although quite an expensive repair. But Qantas has never had a Jet hull loss to my knowledge so why start now.

Though I did read that they found cracks in the A380's wing ribs on a couple of aircraft. Luckily this won't affect the airworthiness of the bird but just add another item to the D-checks. Still, I think the A380 failed its initial wing loading test.

Love the SAS ad, but can't see any particularly Scandinavian dishes to be honest :P

Hope all is well.

getjets said...

Hey there Edwin..........Sooo glad you checked in!!!!!!!!

VH-OQA ... YES INDEED........will be so good to have her flying again.......
and as a side note......

The engine blow out November befor last.........
was the Very reason I started my blog.........!!!!
ok...cool to me.....ha ha

but I will never forget.......
I was watching the "LIVE"...LAX...WEB CAM ON WORK COMPUTER........AND THE ENGINE BLOW UP WAS THE NIGHT BEFORE...

OK..SO....WHEN THE ENGINE BLEW...(the news of it...hadn't really gotten out yet).... .THERE WAS AN INBOUND A-380 FLIGHT..TO LAX

so the Live LAX camera....turned to film the whole landing of that inbound A-380 flight....

after we all know....all A-380's were grounded.........pending the investigation
I was so damn EXCITED about getting to witness...that landing.....the live cam..panned the whole thing................

I tell ya Edwin........THOSE WINGS ARE SO MASSIVE......HOW CAN THERE NOT BE...SOME CRACKS......??????
just a question........the shear weight of them.......don't know about the load testing.......

tell me what are some Scandinavian dishes......I'm stauuuuving....no serious.....
yes...all is well, and I thank ya for the well wishes........

you take care.....and please come back..........can never get tired of surprises.........
later pal..........
misstwa
