On Wednesday, an Emirates Airline flight traveling from India crash-landed and burst into flames on the runway at Dubai International Airport. All 300 of the passengers and crew escaped before the plane exploded.
Flight EK521 was coming from Thiruvananthapuram and there was no emergency notified before landing. However, in what may be a landing gear failure or collapse, the plane was seen on its belly and grinding to a halt.
Thick, dark smoke billowed from the Boeing 777 as it sat on the tarmac .
Thankfully, all passengers were evacuated from the doomed airliner before it burst into flames.
Despite the fiery scene, there were no casualties.
Emirates has never suffered a fatal accident since beginning operations in 1985.
