Super-Jumbo aircrafts faulty
Posted on 4:57pm Monday 9th Jan 2012
Australian aircraft engineers state that the world’s biggest super-jumbo jets must be grounded after there were cracks found in three Airbus A380s, suggesting a possible design flaw.
The Airbus A380s are in service worldwide by multiple high-profile airlines, including Air France, Emirates, Qantas, and China Southern. These engineers say that it may be due to the size of the aircrafts being built and we can’t gamble with people’s lives letting these airbuses fly.
The major issue being that they only receive inspections every forty years. It may be beneficial for not only the general public and the airlines, but the engineers too if they conduct inspections on a regular basis.
