Thanks for the replies as this is good, everyone is learning something.
No sorry I'm not confusing it with the Hudson River event, as it was talk in Singapore when I was there at the time it occurred.

"The A380 suffered a single engine failure albeit uncontained." ... is quite a rubbish simplification of the whole event seriously.

The disintegration of "the single engine failure" Intermediate turbine, caused multiple failures of many systems and flight controls. Fragments of the failed engine flung out, resulting in structural and systems damage. It also severed critical wiring routes, which rendered signals erroneous or devoid. "Uncontained"? I suggest you reword that.

That is where the CRM story begins, after such unexpected multiple failures.
Handing over...
