Jinx on an A380

May 5th, 2014

I was watching this documentary last night on the construction of the Airbus A380s.

One line in particular stood out (14:30):

Just imagine what would happen if anything threatened the integrity of one of those fuel tanks. Like a catastrophic engine failure that sends shards of metal tearing through them. That’s the nightmare that haunts engineers at Rolls-Royce, and they’re about to destroy an engine to ensure that never occurs.

MegaStructures, meet QF32.
