I agree whatseconomy the reason was metal fatigue for the Comet crashes and had nothing to do with the RR engines. I also agree the 380 is a great plane though I have not yet flown on one.

My main point was that I would really like to know exactly what happened, and wonder if RR /QF yet know why the engine exploded the way it did, and why they are now safe for flight?

Happy New Year and safe travels to you as well.
