air displacement of a 380 airbus nose cone causes air flow within immediate port and starboard engines to be un-matched with fuel ratio; ie too much air pressure in ratio to fuel thus causing weak combustion mix; leading to temporary engine stall; note when air pressure reduces engine re-ignites and causes combustion explosion that the engine cannot withstand! this is especially the case when plane is flying in advancing cross headwind when aircraft ascending! remedy is to have auto-matic engine fuel mixture compensation control; ie air intake sensors on immediate port and starboard engines so that on board computer can enrich engine fuel and decrease fuel ratio when air intake drops to normal levels
