Emirates flight EK521 from Thiruvananthapuram (TRV) to Dubai (DXB) apparently had a very hard landing and caught fire. Some were reporting this as an emergency landing. Not sure if the incident started earlier.
The flight was operated by Boeing 777-300 aircraft and was scheduled to land in Dubai at 12:50PM this afternoon (actual landing time 12:44PM).
The photos above that are shared on social media do look very serious. According to media sources passengers were evacuated and there are no reported casualties.
Will should know in due course what caused this incident in Dubai. Let’s hope that all the passengers and crew members are safe.
