While concerns grow over the $11 billion privatisation bid for Qantas, the airline has also had to deal with allegations this week of a cover up after it emerged that a packed passenger jet flew with a huge hole torn in its side.
This picture shows the damage sustained by Qantas flight QF5 on March 8 last year after it was damaged by a blown tyre short after take-off.
The flight was travelling from Singapore to Frankfurt with 408 people on board.
Qantas chief Geoff Dixon denied there was any cover up, or danger for staff and passengers.
"There was no risk to passengers or crew at any time," he told the Seven Network.
