An Emirates A380-800, flight EK-412 from Dubai to Sydney, FL350 about 630nm southeast of Muscat, passed a business jet Challenger 604, flying underneath in opposite direction. The A380 continued the flight to Sydney without any apparent incident and landed safely.
The business jet, performing flight MHV-604 from Male (Maldives) to Abu Dhabi with 9 people on board lost control after passing underneath the A380 as a result of wake turbulence from the A380.
