Let’s hope that everything will go well…
Well that’s one heck of a bug
Finally, I fell in love with an Airbus (Despite being a serious Boeing fan) and it happens to have a risk of exploding…
Well I hope they get working on that, thankfully none of that had happened…
And folks, that is why we call it a scarebus. On a serious note though, I hope airbus finds this problem and fixes it.
Agree. I still think that A350s (in a very very confidential statement as a Boeing fan) are better looking than 78s.
I hope nothing happens.
Thank god they found the bug quickly and before anything happened.
Oh no… They could’ve been bad, so happy they picked it up before anything happened!
I never liked the A350 but I had little hope in it, but the risk of explosion??? It makes the A350 sound like the DH-Comet.
This sounds too similar to the 787 LOL. This time it’s a computer bug. On the 787 it was batteries.
Hopefully will be fixed in the next update? ¯_(ツ)_/¯
Imagine if it did blow up and they had to say in the final report it was a software issue cause the airline had not downloaded the newest version of Airbus OS. This is what this world has come to, I can see hackers taking advantage of this and blowing up an Airbus one day.
Eyy that’s Airbus for ya! "If it ain’t Boeing I ain’t going
How does an Airbus “explode”? Is it an error code or is it fuel related?
The article explains it really well. In a nut shell the hydraulic system over heats that eventually can be hot enough and transfer enough heat to ignite the fuel fumes in the wing fuel tanks.
Yeah I read the article, it’s dangerous, but I’m glad they sent a software fix
So true, Airbus had been relying so much into computers and softwares.
This concern has been mentioned in SQTalk in the past. After numerous A350s were grounded due to mechanical problems. As an example, 9V-SMH just entered service for 5 months before being grounded due to mechanical system fault
Also, If some of us noticed, some newer A350s take longer tests lately (9V-SMM as an example, it takes around 6 test flights prior to her delivery. While early A350s only took 3 test flights prior to her delivery). I do hope everything can be sorted out so it won’t endanger passenger lives who take the plane.
