Component failure caused A380 fire

Rolls-Royce has announced that a faulty component caused a mid-air engine explosion which forced the A380 Qantas superjumbo to make an emergency landing in Singapore last week.

Passengers on board the Qantas flight described seeing an engine burst into flames minutes into the journey.
