Eight Weeks Later…

We find out what we already knew [1]:

An exploding oxygen tank forced an emergency landing of a Qantas jet in Manila after it blew a hole in the fuselage, air safety investigators have found.

The tank failed and burst, blasting through the cabin floor from a storage area between business and economy class seats on a Hong Kong to Melbourne flight last month, a preliminary report by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) found.

Unfortunately, eight weeks is only enough to catch up on information already known, not to actually find out anything new or useful

Bureau investigators are yet to determine why the tank exploded, almost two months after the July 5 incident.

And as it seems to be a day of quotes, bleeding obvious quote of the day goes to Julian Walsh from the Australian Transport Safety Bureau

The passengers were obviously very lucky

Slow news day perhaps?
