Qantas . . . Still a Safe Airline

Yesterday, one of the world's safest airlines, Australia's Qantas, had a major explosive decompression event that tore a gaping hole in the side of the aircraft. Fortunately, the pilots were able to safely land at Manila, and not a single person was injured. I think I would have needed to make a purchase of clean underwear following such a frightening incident! It is a testament to human resiliency that the passengers remained fairly calm, as evidenced by the video below, taken on board the plane as it descended and landed.
