Emirates Airlines A380-800 arriving at Toronto Lester B. Pearson International Airport (YYZ) from Dubai International Airport (DXB) on a remarkable Sunday morning 2019. Surprisingly, this Airbus A380 was Emirates' second Super Jumbo arrival into Pearson on July 21st, an increase from the daily flight. Such an unusual situation owes itself to safety precautions taken after engine issues of the previous day on another Emirates A380. On its return flight, one of the super jumbo's four engines experienced a catastrophic failure, forcing the flight crew to terminate the turbine and return to Toronto just over 20 minutes into the flight. As the damaged machinery required significant time for a replacement, Emirates dispatched another A380, arriving the following day in addition to their regular A380 flight, in order to recover the stranded passengers. This is that flight. Moreover, Emirates is also sporting their special Dubai Expo 2020 livery, which can be found on 40 of fleet members. The circular designs located on the mid fuselage are blue on this aircraft, but others include green and orange. Each colour represents one of the three main themes for the Dubai 2020 Expo: blue for mobility, green for sustainability, and orange for opportunity. Significantly, the logo of the Dubai Expo 2020 is inspired by a ring found at a 4000 year old archaeological site in the UAE. This emblem is situated near the front of the fuselage next to the English title. Amazing to have an extra A380 "rescue" plane for the day, don't you think? Enjoy!
