Airbus A380-800 [QF32]

Qantas A380-800 VH-OQA

"The cockpit is amazing and the handling is just realistic, which i can see you paid a great effort in it."

------HorizonWXR, The test pilot

It took me more than a year to finish the plane. It's my longest work, but I'm also proud to say it's my favorite. Not only is it special in its own right -- the miraculous return of flight QF32 with an engine explosion -- but it's also the plane where I made some major breakthroughs, such as more realistic cockpit and more smooth bodywork.


QF32: Titanic in the Sky

Qantas Flight 32 was a regularly scheduled passenger flight from London to Sydney via Singapore. On 4 November 2010, the aircraft operating the route, an Airbus A380, suffered an uncontained failure in one of its four Rolls-Royce Trent 900 engines. The failure occurred over the Riau Islands, Indonesia, four minutes after takeoff from Singapore Changi Airport. After holding for almost two hours to assess the situation, the aircraft made a successful emergency landing at Changi. I learned that the accident was caused by Air Crash Investigation. I was deeply impressed by the skill of the crew and really admired them.


The story behind the name: Nancy-Bird Walton

She was the first female pilot of Australia. She was a pioneering Australian aviator, known as "The Angel of the Outback", and the founder and patron of the Australian Women Pilots' Association. I accidentally searched for information about her out of curiosity about the name of the plane. Even though I only read Wikipedia and some other information, I can still feel her good qualities. Perhaps it was a coincidence that the name of the pioneer came up against the skilled crew that made the flight so impressive.

    YESSSSS
    I got to speak to Richard de Crespigny who was the pilot of this aircraft when QF32 had its number two engine uncontained failure. It was all over the news and I can remember it as a kid.
    He's an amazing man and he trained to fly F-111s (known as the Pig in Australia) but never went on to fly as a fighter pilot. QANTAS then took him in after his time in the military
    This is an amazing build - I'm sad I cannot run it but the looks alone are superb!

    @klm747klm747 excactly. I just discovered the fuselage cutting trick for a better livery job. But I wont compromise with part count.

    @DJRianGamerUwU Well maybe just admire the plane itself for the high part count (Becuz it took him Years For the plane builds to be completed)

    I like it, but fuselage cutting (especially in areas like the engine kangaroo) would definitely help you:
    A. Lower your part count with the same detail, or
    B. Increase your detail for the same part count.
