Qantas Flight 32 was a Qantas scheduled passenger flight that suffered an uncontained engine failure on 4 November 2010 and made an emergency landing at Singapore Changi Airport. The failure was the first of its kind for the Airbus A380, the world's largest passenger aircraft. It marked the first aviation occurrence involving an Airbus A380. On inspection it was found that a turbine disc in the aircraft's No. 2 Rolls-Royce Trent 900 engine (on the port side nearest the fuselage) had disintegrated. The aircraft had also suffered damage to the nacelle, wing, fuel system, landing gear, flight controls, the controls for engine No. 1 and an undetected fire in the left inner wing fuel tank that eventually self-extinguished. The failure was determined to have been caused by the breaking of a stub oil pipe which had been manufactured improperly.

The pilots were overloaded with warning signals. It's probably a lucky thing that there were extra evaluation pilots in the cockpit.

I don't know why the media keeps likening this incident to the Titanic.
The Titanic has not delivered a single passenger safely across the Atlantic. (true, its sister ships have, after serious changes to safety features)
As of 2018, the A380 operated for over a decade, delivering millions of passengers worldwide, with not a single fatality. (though I don't want to jinx that record by making this comment)
pop5678eye (10 days ago)
Typical hypocrisy of American xenophobes: if it's an Airbus and there is an incident, but the aircraft lands safely... 'It proves how unsafe Airbus is, I'll never fly on one!' When an actual accident happens of a Boeing aircraft that may even involve injuries and death... 'See how many people Boeing saved with its redundant systems and safety features? I only ever want to fly Boeing!'
The comments are so predictable...

"Titanic in the Sky?" this is an identical title to another youtube video on the same subject.
it is equally offensive in both.
On the Titanic most of the people died.
On this flight none of the people died.
On the Titanic there was massive incompetence.
On this flight there was very high level competence.
QANTAS has never ever had a fatal accident.
There is no other airline on planet Earth of the same age, who has anything like this reputation for safety.
Australians have been pioneers in civil aviation.
Hargraves was a contemporary of the Wright brothers.
The RAAF is one of the world's oldest Air Forces
In 1946 it was actually the fourth largest air force in the world.
An analogy should be logically related to what it is talking about. To describe this as being like the "Titanic" is completely illogical, given that the Titanic didn't embark a bunch of happy customers in New York Harbor, get repaired and go on to make lots more voyages.
Perhaps some of you don't know much about Australian pilots. They tend to have the calmness under pressure/stiff upper lip that the best of the British have, and the ballsy optimism of the Americans, along with a long proud tradition of pragmatic quick thinking Australian aviators which is then honed, refined, strengthened, sharpened and polished by utterly shitloads of training.
I'm guessing you are not an American, but this negative out of nowhere is something they do well. I once saw the AK47 described as being "idiot-proof", which sounds like a bad thing, because it calls the other guys you're fighting "idiots"; however idiot proof means it is the most reliable assault rifle ever built. When is "reliable" or great engineering a bad thing? so sure. Just like the Titanic, apart from having almost nothing in common whatsoever with the Titanic, and being a slur on 5 heroic guys who absolutely had their shit together.

M.J. Leger (1 month ago)
We had to mute this, why don't you (Allec Ibay) learn to tone down the volume on your videos? Your videos always have some kind of problem or another to make us watch out for them to NOT click on them! Too bad, because you have some good incidents that were involved.
M.J. Leger (1 month ago)
Of course I can adjust the volume, but then, I have to go in and change it back, it's just much easier to mute what I don't want to hear (I just tap f6) -- if it has captions, I'll read -- I KNOW what aircraft engines sound like! But thanks for the suggestion anyway.
Jero Briggs (1 month ago)
Can't you turn your volume down if it's too loud? That's what I do. I find more frustrating that the adds at the beginning are way too loud.
juliet juliet (1 month ago)
I think these "warning sounds" during emergency situations are terribly disruptive to rational thought process and should have a deactivation once the situation has been identified and which reactivates at another "issue" - do they?
EdgemanLL2 (12 days ago)
Yes, the crew can quiet the alarm. But if conditions deteriorate or a new problem arises, the alarm returns.

I was wondering how a plane piloted by a dude with such a badass name like "Champion" could ever crash, but then I realized that the copilots' names were Matt Hicks and Mark Johnson and it made me understand that those two normal names completely canceled out the pilots badass name.
As soon as i seen quants...i knew the ending would be happy

I’m from Australia, and I will honestly not rest until I learn that QANTAS, JetStar and Virgin Australia are the safest flights in the world. I saw this video and I freaked out. Well, the Titanic didn’t really have a pleasant maiden voyage. I just clicked on it an now I’m relieved. Great job, pilots. Australia does have the safest flights in the world.

For all of those in the comments who are 50-50 about the fact they only used one engine for reverse thrust and it is wrong, please look it up. Multiple sources state that they used one engine for reverse thrust on landing. They did use reverse thrust. Obviously the plane didn't veer off the runway because of it. I am not a pilot and I can't find exactly what they did to compensate for it, but the pilots knew what they were doing to compensate for having reverse thrust on only one side.

Quantas has not had a fatal crash since 1952. Southwest Airlines has not had a fatality since Southwest began in 1967. This is what happens when airlines treat their employees well. When airlines do not treat their employees well, passengers (including children) pay with their lives.

I find it a little weird and bad designing not to have a master shut off switch or lever accessible from some external port or access door so that any of the engines could be shut down by the ground crew in an emergency such as this.
