The chronology of the Qantas crashes

A Qantas A380 plane had to make an emergency landing at the Changi Airport Singapore, after it experienced engine trouble

A Qantas A380 was bound for Australia from Singapore but unfortunately the flight could not reach its destination as the Qantas A380 experienced engine trouble and had to make an emergency landing at Singapore.

This Qantas A380 incident took place on Thursday and the engine had started giving trouble just six minutes into the flight, when it was flying over Indonesia. Initially there were reports, that the Qantas A380 had crashed in Indonesia due to the discovery of metal pieces but later the news was ruled out.

The Qantas A380 was carrying 433 passengers and 26 crew members but thankfully none of them were hurt after the plane crash landed. The Qantas A380 dumped fuel and circled the skies over Singapore before it was allowed to make an emergency landing at the city’s Changi Airport Terminal 1 on Runway 2 at 11:46 am.
