After watching a video of one taking off in Aussy land and the controler said I hope there is enough battery left for the crash. It took ever foot of paved runway to get off and the dust blast caused by the engines was quite impresive. So they operate unlike any thing in the normal world more like a third world airline.
As an aircraft engineer with 51 years experience, I can assure the first respondent that no transport aircraft has been built which could have landed in any reasonable distance at the payload and fuel state experienced by that 124. Standard practice would have been to burn off or dump fuel before landing. Clearly, this was not possible because of the miscellaneous system failures experienced by the crew. Early investigations will no doubt concentrate on the uncontained turbine failure followed by a review of airframe damage tolerance . Remember the United DC-10 at Sioux City
