sorry, but anything weighing as much as a full A380 hitting the ground at 150kts is going to have trouble,

Of course you are right Frank, I just thought it won't matter in this context

Today's comment from Airbus on the "problems:"
And an A330 actually crashed during a test, with the loss of one of Airbus' most senior test pilots (and the rest of the crew).
|Quoting B707Stu (reply 23):|
My gut tells me where there's smoke there's fire. The question is, is it a smoldering low grade fire requiring some unexpected attention or are we talking inferno?
|Quoting Cedarjet (reply 27):|
All new designs have problems - remember when that 777 had an explosive decompression during a test flight?
|Quoting Qantas077 (reply 37):|
the longer it takes the 380 to get into the air the longer it's going to be before we see the QF vs SQ battle for premium pax and premium routes, i think thats what the article is getting at.
