What it should have been

In yesterday's Big Picture story, "'Beluga whale' takes to the skies for the first time", we said that the Beluga XL aircraft is powered by two Rolls-Royce Trent 700 Turbofan engines costing US$690 million each.

This is wrong. According to a Rolls-Royce statement, the contract to provide engines and their maintenance for five of the aircraft was worth US$700 million (S$954 million).

We are sorry for the error.
