Qantas A380 Engine Failure


QF92 from LAX to Melbournes engine blew up 2hrs through the flight. Passengers described it as flames were shooting out the back of the engine. the plane landed safely afterwards. Hopefully the stub pipe was not involved

Oh wow. Why is it always Qantas’ A380s?

Please add more substance to your post. Especially because it’s a News topic inside of #real-world-aviation.

First QF32, now QF94. Can’t wait to see the ACI episode on this.

Hope it is not a Stub pipe failure

Sounds like an engine stall to me, maybe Im wrong but engine stall is more likely

Hopefully the NTSB and the ATSB figure what happened and make the world a safer place. I think they should look at the stub pipe first

Didn’t this happen on Qantas flight 32 also on an A380. Maybe this engine failure is similar to the other one?

Yes, it is always Qantas. The stub pipe thing has since been fixed on all A380s, so it must be another issue.

Yeah this happened on QF32 but it was worse on QF32 than 94.

If you look at the picture the cowling is okay unlike QF32

Ironic i just watched the air crash investigation for the last qantas a380 incident.

I would have been very scared if i was on the plane based of the damage occurred last time.

Also does this mean grounded a380 for qantas?

Until they find the issue

I went on VHOQA recently. That was the aircraft involved in QF32. Ironically the Captain was Richard De Crespigny. He was the pilot of QF32! I got to have a 20m chat with him, go into the cockpit and etcetera. I even got his darn business card!

Doubt it. It isn’t as big as QF32. It is also a reasonably small incident

But the public may need reassuring based off previous incident

(i mean old incident :) )

Not really Qantas fault that they happened to buy the engine that would blow up 9 years later. QF32 it was lucky that it was a Qantas engine that blew up otherwise the plane would of crashed a few miles short of the runway. Loosing hydraulics is extremely dangerous, loosing all of them and landing the plane safely has only ever been done once.

doubt a stall could have caused that much, flames shooting out of the engine

It wouldn’t have been a stall.

Same. Engine Stalls can’t do that sort of devil magic called engine fire / explosion that bad explosion 💥💥💥💥💥💥💥
