Does anybody hear any details on mentioned accident at Dubai Airport at 22 Sep?
There are unconfirmed rumors through media that CA hasn’t declare any emergency (!) and has landed aircraft without gear down. Tower controller who saw sparks and fire has call for equipment, no one injured, however aircraft suffered heavy damages and one engine has totally burned.

Sorry my English,

Just heard.
Noise abatement procedure force to extend gear down after flaps extracted to known position on Il-86, this is unusual and not comply with AOM, of course crew has shut gear horn buzzing after flaps being extracted and flying crew then forgot about it, that’s it, shut the horn and you’ve got it.
