Emirates 777-300 crashes on landing in Dubai

Emirates aircraft, EK521, flying from Thiruvananthapuram, India, to Dubai made an emergency landing at Dubai International Airport today. There were 282 passengers and 18 crew on board the aircraft – all are safe. Dubai International Airport has been closed until further notice creating absolute chaos for Emirates

Due to the closure of Dubai International Airport (DXB), flydubai has cancelled all flights to and from DXB until 22:00 (Dubai time). Dubai terminals are said to be in a “crowded state”. Initial speculation revolves around a possible landing gear fault causing the right wing to dip tearing off the engine and rupturing fuel tanks. The salvage value will all be in the left hand engine and the APU as there is little else remaining following a large cabin fire.
