Well This Is Something You Don’t See Every Day of the Day: The engine of a Qantas Airbus A380 exploded mid-air, sending debris hurtling toward the ground mere minutes after taking off from Singapore’s Changi Airport en route to Sydney.

The plane landed safely, and none of the 459 people on board were injured. Qantas, meanwhile, has grounded its Airbus A380 fleet pending an investigation into the incident.


I saw this on BBC World News this morning.
