Qantas A380s

BBC News
A Qantas A380 passenger jet has taken off in its first flight since one of the planes suffered an engine explosion earlier this month, officials said.

The A380 is travelling from Sydney to Singapore, and then London, three weeks after the Australian airline grounded its flights following the incident.

Qantas says the aircraft have undergone extensive work and are safe to fly.

I had a window seat on my flight from LAX to YVR last Saturday and we taxied right next to where Qantas parked their A380s. I didn't get a photo but I saw three grounded A380s with their engine covers removed. That's a lot of hardware depreciating on the ground.
