I've just heard about the latest incident where a Qantas 747 had to return to SYD (I think it was SYD) after there was smoke in the cockpit on a flight to Buenos Aires. This and the recent run of incidents being reported across the media since the A380 engine failure a couple of weeks ago made me wonder if they really are having more problems lately or are we just hearing about it more. I know for a fact there are normally plenty of small things that happen that don't make it onto the 6 o'clock news. You just have to browse the ATSB site for evidence of those. Your opinions please.
