It’s Sunday, so it must be time for some more airplane art. This week, it’s a Qantas Airbus A380 – the first one delivered to their fleet – Nancy Bird Walton at London Heathrow Airport.
This A380 was first of the fleet delivered to Qantas and named after one of the pioneers of Australian aviation – Nancy Bird Walton. This aircraft has had an interesting life, mainly it being involved in the QF32 incident where one of the engines had and uncontained engine failure, with one of the fans disintegrating in flight on 4th October 2010. After 18 months on the ground being repaired, the plane took back to the air on the 22nd April 2012.
The plane now serves in the Qantas mainline fleet, criss-crossing the world.
More Airplane Art next week!
