    Singapore Airlines said more than 400 passengers bound for Sydney were on board, but no injuries were reported.

     

    The airline said the aircraft suffered only "superficial damage" and had been thoroughly inspected after the incident.

     

    The A380 is the largest commercial aircraft ever built and airports have had to introduce several modifications to cope with its size.
