Oil pipe defect caused 2010 Qantas engine blowout

FILE - In this Nov. 13, 2010 file photo provided by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau, an engine that failed on a Qantas A380 superjumbo is removed from the plane at Singapore Airport in Singapore. The dramatic disintegration of a Qantas superjumbo jet engine during a flight in 2010 was triggered by a poorly built oil pipe that failed to conform to design specifications, Australian investigators said Thursday, June 27, 2013 in their final report into the emergency. The Rolls-Royce engine exploded on the Qantas A380 shortly after takeoff from Singapore, forcing an emergency landing and becoming the most significant safety issue an A380 had faced since starting passenger flights in 2007. Rolls-Royce faced intense scrutiny of its engines, and A380s around the world were temporarily grounded.
