sorry, docs show OQA eng was carrying reported overspeed fault at time of 4 November incident.

none the less core issue is still the same - RR knew about the potential risk and (allegedly) said nothing.

Trust is the new specification requiring compliance.

Back on LAX this Sunday but some questions here

Someone in the media is talking to the ALAEA? Torrid stuff following the announcement of a return to service over the Pacific.

What comes after the Qantas A380s resume LAX services? – Plane Talking

^^^ from the above article................

There are some really good accountancy arguments in favor of divesting excellence in engineering and maintenance, and for that matter, pilot endorsement training, to third party providers.

But the QF32 experience puts Qantas on notice that when it loses control over its standards it risks losing everything.
