The Jumbo Jet is the B747 not the A380, which is a bit misleading in the title..

Did you mean to say super jumbo jet A380 engine problem? At least this one is not a wing crack.

Here's the full article from YAHOO-ey!
SINGAPORE, March 27 (Reuters) - A Singapore Airlines Ltd (SIA) Airbus A380 aircraft was forced to turn back to Singapore earlier on Tuesday after encountering a problem with one of its engines.

"SQ26 from Singapore to Frankfurt turned back to Singapore about 2 hour 55 minutes into the flight, after the crew reported a problem with one of the aircraft's four engines," an SIA spokeswoman said.

The plane, which left Singapore at 00:05 am local time (1605 GMT), landed without incident, she added. The affected passengers were put on a replacement flight that has since left Singapore for the German city.

SIA said its crew reported an engine surge and the engine will undergo thorough inspections in consultation with engine maker Rolls-Royce.

SIA, Singapore's flag carrier, is one of the biggest users of the A380 superjumbo, with 16 of the aircraft in service and three more scheduled for delivery this year.

The superjumbo has been affected by a number of technical problems including minor cracks on part of its wings.

In late 2010, one of the engines on a Qantas Airways Ltd A380 exploded in mid-air over Indonesia, forcing the plane to make an emergency landing in Singapore.

The accident prompted the Australian carrier to ground its entire superjumbo fleet for nearly a month.

Why did the aircraft turn back to singapore after 2 hous 55 minutes? If it has a problem serious enough to turn back why didnt it just land wherever it was? Turning back means another 2hours 55 minutes to get home and if there was a problem doesnt this just cause another risk for 2 hours and 55 minutes?

Maybe there were no facilities large enough for the plane anywhere nearby, and they didn't want to strand the passengers.

Most likely but if they can fly home for almost 3 hours, why not carry onto there destination another 3 hours closer.

If the aircraft has flown 3 hours and had a problem, flown back to singapore for 3 hours and the replacement aircaft takes 3 hours to get to the point of problems with the original aircraft this is a minimum of 9 hours delay.
If it can take a risk to fly at under 100% for 3 hours it can fly for 3 hours closer to destination.

If I were to guess (and that's all it is), I'd say the reason they went back is if the situation worsened they'd have a hard time explaining why they continued on to their destination, risking the passengers rather than turning back. It's all about appearances, logic doesn't always apply.

From the sounds of it, it's not too much of an issue and the plane can continue flying until it reaches a certain point, in which they have to "repair the wing".

That's a scary thought!
