QF32, A Decade on – An Interview with First Officer Matt Hicks

IFA Comment: Great interview

by James Field,  Airways Magazine

November marks a decade since QF32 successfully landed back at Singapore Changi Airport (SIN) following an uncontained engine failure.

This was the first time an Airbus A380 had problems like this, with this event reflecting on a lot of regulatory changes that had to be made to engines produced by Rolls Royce.

Airways got the opportunity to speak to the First Officer onboard the flight, Matt Hicks, where he discussed it being 10 years since the event happened, what he is doing now as well as Covid-19 and the Airbus A380.
