    ‘Big hole’ in Qantas plane prompts landing
    Jet touches down in Manila after mysterious 'explosive decompression'

    MANILA, Philippines - A hole the size of a small car in the underside of a Qantas jumbo jet carrying 346 passengers forced the pilot to make an emergency landing Friday after a rapid descent over the South China Sea.

    And that is just one of many reasons whay I don't fly. Never have, never will. I know, I have heard all the stats before about how you are more likely to be killed in a car. Doesn't matter. I am still not flying.

    What? The only time I think a flight fits the 'all is good' category is when it is completely uneventful.
    People don't like to be meddled with. We tell them what to do, what to think, don't run, don't walk. We're in their homes and in their heads and we haven't the right. We're meddlesome.--River Tam

    The significant fact here is that a hole the size of a small car is ripped into the belly of the aircraft and it still flew and managed to land safely.

    I believed this is why antis don't want people carrying guns on planes.

    I just avoid the planes with holes in them. That strategy has worked so far.

    Looks more like a repeat of what happened on the Hawaiian flight a number of years back, metal fatigue, caused by too many landings n takeoff cycles.

    Any time you can walk away from an airplane after landing it is a good day.

    The problem is those that develope holes in mid air.
