Qantas suspends A380 flights after scare


Qantas has suspended all A380 flights for security reasons after one of its planes was forced to make an emergency landing.

Debris from a super-jumbo Australian passenger jet has been shown on Indonesian television after it suffered engine trouble shortly after take off.

Qantas flight QF32 was travelling from Singapore to Sydney when it was forced to return to Changi airport to make an emergency landing.

First reports said the plane with 459 people on board had crashed but that was later denied.

Witnesses on the nearby Indonesian island of Batam say they heard an explosion as the plane flew overhead.

The captain managed to shut down one of the aircraft’s four engines on his return although smoke was seen billowing from the plane as it landed safely.
