Thought you guys might like to view this excellent presentation from Aussie TV. Make yourselves comfortable as it goes for about 20 minutes. http://www.abc.net.au/iview/#/view/741699 Enjoy

Many thanks for this. The video won't play here at work (and anyway, I am supposed to be working) but I'll view it this evening at home. Reading about the event from other sources, I can't believe how close the A380 came to crashing. Just imagine the fallout if that had happened, not to mention the awful human tragedy.

Bummer. Sorry guys, I did know/realise that it was Oz only. I'll see if I can get it to you some other way. Catch you later, Doug

Bad news I'm afraid. I've been in contact with the ABC TV company and they report that it's not possible to record the show as it's a live streaming project........? go figure. Such a pity as it was truly well done.

Does anyone know how the repair work is going? Last week, I visited my nephew a student in Oxford, he told me he has a friend, an engineer who normally doesn't work in aviation, who has been employed to help get the plane repaired. He didn't know exactly what he was doing, but he thought his friend is somehow involved in the infrastructure of the repair process. He was told the costs of parking/hangar rent alone was astronomical. Anyway you look at it, it's an expensive operation...made more so by its size, location, and the fact that no repair like this has been done on a 380 before.
