Plane hit runway as landing gear was retracting
The crash landing of an Emirates plane in Dubai just over a month ago happened because the pilot tried to abort at the last moment and the plane hit the runway as its landing gear was retracting, a preliminary report has found.
The attempt to abort the landing came after an initial touchdown, the report by the United Arab Emirates’ General Civil Aviation Authority shows, a decision made because the wind changed direction in the final moments.
There were exactly 300 people on board flight EK521 from Thiruvananthapuram, India, when it crashed on August 3. None were killed but 24 were injured and a firefighter on the ground died.
