It’s not tight at all! The Emirates Airbus A380-800 flight was in the air for 13 hours – with a hole in the fuselage. The plane flew from Dubai to Brisbane on Friday. After landing in Australia, technicians noticed a large hole as the plane’s portal «Aviation Herald» reported.

According to preliminary investigations, a screw in the nose gear may have come loose during take-off. It may have hit the fuselage and caused a hole. As one passenger described in a blog, about 30 to 40 minutes after takeoff, there was a loud thunderclap.
