Leaks found on Qantas superjumbos


Qantas Airways has reported oil leaks on three Rolls-Royce engines from its grounded fleet of six A380 superjumbos.

More extensive tests will follow, which means the Australian carrier won’t get its aircraft back in service by the 48-hour deadline it set last week.

Since Thursday, crash investigators have been looking into why an engine exploded shortly after a Sydney-bound flight took off from Singapore.

Much of the debris from the A380’s engine fell on Indonesia’s Batam Island. No one was injured.
