Qantas plane that lost engine returns to service!

SINGAPORE Australia's Qantas took its repaired A380 superjumbo back to the skies on Saturday, resuming a 3,900 mile journey dramatically interrupted 18 months ago when one of its engines blew up over Indonesia.

With each aircraft costing almost $400 million at today's list prices, the insurance-paid repair bill of A$139 million ($143 million) was cheaper than writing off the damaged jet.
