the week it was, 3 August 2008
Flying Kangaroo is in damage control. A Quantas 767 bound for Manila yesterday was forced to return to Sydney when hydraulic fluid started leaking from a critical steering unit shortly after take off. It's the third mid-air emergency involving the airline in the past eight (8) days. Here's the regular The Week It Was. As usual, the clip is encoded in H.264 format. Why do I use H.264 format? See this QuickTime codec comparison page and judge yourself.
A Qantas 767 bound for Manila yesterday was forced to return to Sydney when hydraulic fluid started leaking from a critical steering unit shortly after take off. Some Qantas are concerned that cost-cutting and overseas maintenance could be putting safety at risk. At first, there was a hole in the plane (the plane was forced to land in Manila), few days there, there was a door failed (which forced the plane to land in Adelaide). Beijing is preparing for Olympics, and the pollution control seems to be working. 5.4 magnitude earthquake hit Los Angeles.
For those who like YouTube, here's YouTube version:
The video clip is encoded with state-of-the-art video codec H.264, which delivers stunning quality at remarkably low data rates. QuickTime Player 7 (free) is recommended for watching the video.
