Parts of a Rolls-Royce engine are displayed at the 8th China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition (Zhuhai Airshow) in Zhuhai, southern coast of Guangdong province, China, Tuesday, Nov. 16, 2010. Rolls-Royce will temporarily replace any oil-leaking engines like the one that caught fire and blew apart on a Qantas superjumbo jet earlier this month, and aviation official said Monday. Qantas said it found oil leaks in three of its Airbus A380s powered by the Rolls-Royce engines. Its entire fleet of six remains grounded since the blowout on the flight to Sydney, which forced the safe return of the jet to Singapore. The airshow will run from Nov. 16 to 21.
