Silence isn’t golden for engine-maker Rolls-Royce (AP)

A scale model of Rolls-Royce engine Trent 1000 which has been tailored for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner is 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. (AP Photo/Kin Cheung)AP – Silence has not proved golden for Rolls-Royce, the maker of an engine that blew apart on the world’s biggest commercial jetliner this month, shooting metal scrap into the wing and setting off a plunge in the British company’s stock price.
