Following another report of passenger plane engine trouble, this time on a Boeing 747, Qantas Senior Vice President, Mick Toomey announced that Halliburton will be employed to manage all further quality control inspections and repairs on its fleet of A380, A320, and 747 aircraft.

Though Halliburton is managing a bit of a "black eye" in the United States over its management of the BP oil well sealing in the Gulf of Mexico, and its use of caustic chemicals in shale gas exploration, Qantas feels comfortable that its quality control engineers are more than qualified to handle something simple like jet engine inspections and maintenance.

"We see this as a win-win for Qantas and Halliburton. They need to prove themselves again as a world leader in contract engineering and quality control, and Qantas needs to dump a little risk when it comes to inspecting engines", says Toomey.

No word yet if former U.S. vice president and major Halliburton stockholder, Dick Chaney will be involved in the deal, but insiders confirm that he definitely won't be looking for a bird hunting excursion while in Australia.
