as per avherald, it was a normal flight without any emergency, tower informed operating crew for gears up during approach due to which did go around with gear up at low altitude (and most probably lost altitude) and hit the runway, good that all evacuated safely



lets wait for preliminary report within a month and final report in coming years

"According to ATC recordings the aircraft performed a normal approach and landing, there was no priority or emergency declared. Upon contacting tower tower reminded the crew of lowering the gear and cleared the aircraft to land. Another approach reported on tower frequency. About 2 minutes after EK-521 reported on tower, the crew reported going around, tower instructed the aircraft to climb to 4000 feet, the crew acknowledged climbing to 4000 feet, a few seconds later tower instructs the next arrival to go around and alerts emergency services. The position of the aircraft is described near the end of the runway."

How is it possible that a 777 approaches for a landing and there is no warning in the cockpit for landing gear and even after that pilots continue for landing. Strange! :-k

Aircraft is badly damaged but fortunately all souls on board remains safe Alhumdulillah.
Flying operations still disturbed and no confirm time given so far.

So far UAE media handle this matter very professionally and they are releasing the statements step by step. There will be surely series of incidents which cause this serious damage. Waiting for more updates.

One firefighter died and ten pessengers injured. Aircraft was quiet old B 777 300 with animal class 3 4 3 abreast configuration. Can any one please confirm that why Emirates operates old aircrafts on South Asian routs except Mumbai? To me it looks Pakistani local bus, nicely decorated but always over loaded.

The plane was delivered on 2003, not 'quite old' by any standard. The PIA Flagship b777 were acuired in same time frame, i.e 2003-4

There is no such discrimination. However, generaly B773 with trent engines are employed on shorter sectors i.e middle east, subcontinent and eastern europe. I have my flown to Pakistan on few occassions where the aircraft was just a week old and in one case on its first revenue flight.
To me it looks Pakistani local bus, nicely decorated but always over loaded.
The plane was 1/3 of its capacity. Regardless of the age, the cabin and exteriors get a rgular makeover and upgrade and in most cases one cant tell this is an 'older' plane.

I suggest one must get the facts right before commenting in such a derogatory manner. Some quick corrections:

Some Facebook page claims there is at least one pax who couldn't sustain the injuries and now died. He is an Emrati.

Remember Emitates can't compare with PiA because it is just like oil company's airline and PIA is an airline of a hundered times bigger country. It is in bad times now but it will grow again soon inshallah. That means Aircarft was 13 years old with makeup done like Niazi HInobBus service or New Khan coach service. And about discrimination, I have seen with my eyes cabin crew behaviour toward fellow pessangers. Just because they were wearing national dress not a modern one, it is same with other ME airlines.
