Yikes...if I looked out the window and saw that it would surely make me pucker. Glad everyone got on the ground safely, although there are reports that some passengers were stuck on the plane for 23 hours waiting for other planes to arrive.

They would not land a damaged plane, then not let the passengers deboard.

Stuck at the airport? Sure. Stuck on the plane? No way.

A-380 can safely land with 3 engines, they just dump fuel and immediately head to closet airport that has a long runway for such a big aircraft.

Luckily they didn't have an engine failure on take off when plane was at its heaviest weight.

They were indeed stuck on the plane as the airport claimed they did not have facilities for that many passengers. They had to await the arrival of two other aircraft before they could leave and complete their journey!!

It's always nice to know a fully fueled jet is 40-45% by weight fuel! Gives new meaning to
the old phrase "flying gas can". LOL

Looks like the engines Air France speced on their A380s are Engine Alliance GP7200s, a GE/PW joint venture. Anyone know how these engines perform in revenue service? CNBC article shows the fan case(and the associated control gear/accessory gearbox and pumps/generator) is gone.

Rolls-Royce had something similar happen to a Trent 900 on a QF A380. Compressor/turbine disc failure?

They should have used 5w30 instead of 0w20.

The front is the compressor . That is first thing I thought when I saw the pics.

That is a crock and should never be allowed. Anything over a few hours and everyone should be taken off the plane. If someone had a DVT as a result of sitting for so long there would be a law suit. Unacceptable.

That plane can take off fully loaded with only two engines! smile

I suspect (from looking at the pictures) one of the fan blades developed a crack at its root and hit the containment ring.

There can be many people on board the A380 did the airport have the capability to handle the crowd??

Let the passengers out and allow them to mill around airport until they can catch another flight.

No. It can't.

It can take off on three.

It can fly on two, but not far and not high...

It's an overweight pig. Despite all the Airbus fanboy opinion.

The A-320 series is a great airplane, but this one isn't.
