While I think it has some resemblance to the B-52 Superfortress crash mentioned in this post, I do notice that the Qatar Airways pilot has a lot more respect for climb and bank angles.

It seems like he never let the Boeing 787 Dreamliner exceed about 40 degrees, while the American Superfortress pilot at the time of crash had a very unsafe bank angle of 90 degrees wile being at only a couple wingspans above ground. Remember, the Superfortress is super-heavy, and if you remove wing lift from the equation... :(

You can fly a small bird like a small bird, but a big bird... :wink:

The second image, of the Qantas A380, was a turbine disk failure due to an improper fitting of a single stem pipe into the engine. The turbine blew out and caused shrapnel to fly out over the left wing and left side of the fuselage, with some shrapnel even reaching Engine #4! The aircraft then spent about 2hr 30min in a traffic pattern over Changi Airport in Singapore before making a landing 43 tonnes overweight and with very, VERY limited braking and steering capability. The calculated stopping distance of the aircraft with all the failures, was 3900 metres. The runway itself is 4000.

I highly recommend Richard Champion de Crespigny's (the captain) book about the incident, QF32.


Cheers,
Sam.

Remember how common planes like the 727 used to be?

A good tip was to open the door before crash landing ....( For not being trapped in case...) ... Thumbs up !
