The giant Emirates plane lands with a large hole in the fuselage – Prisma

The giant Emirates A380 aircraft touched down at Brisbane International Airport in Australia on Friday night with a large hole in the side of the fuselage in an area near the left wing known as the root fairing.

Sources claim that the damage may have occurred during take-off from Dubai about 13 and a half hours before the plane landed in Australia.

The three-year-old A380 took off from Dubai International Airport at 2:30 am on Friday but continued its journey. The pilots would not have reported to Air Traffic Control in Brisbane that tires might explode on takeoff.

The double-decker plane landed safely in Brisbane but stopped on the runway. Emergency services initially discovered a large hole in the aerodynamic, as well as a “penetration” in the underside of the fuselage.

In December 2021, an Emirates Boeing 777 with 374 passengers and crew on board flew at a low and fast altitude over a densely populated, high-altitude area of ​​Dubai, before rising only after flying over the Persian Gulf.

Initial reports indicated that the pilots attempted to take off with the altitude limiter set to zero feet, but the captain claims to have noticed this error prior to departure.

But analysts questioned why the plane was allowed to continue on to Washington, D.C. rather than back to Dubai, where damages could be checked.

A month later, a second Boeing 777-300 operated by Emirates began landing the runway for takeoff without first obtaining clearance from air traffic control when another plane crossed the runway.

The plane reached 130 “specific speed knots” before the pilots permanently refused to take off. Surprisingly, after returning to a holding point at the airport, the flight was cleared of departure after only 30 minutes without any further incidents.

The A380 involved in the latest accident is still on the ground in Brisbane and the return flight to Dubai has been postponed. The nearly three-year-old A6-EVK has its own museum of painting the Museum of the Future that celebrates a new ring-shaped building on Dubai’s iconic Sheikh Zayed Road.
