Emirates B777 gear collapse @ DXB?

Just received a message from a friend at Dubai airport that the Emirates 777 had landed with the gear collapsing and would have caught fire? Any info anyone?

It's gonna be interesting to see how this works out with lots of brainwashed pilots carrying minimum fuel and probably taking SHJ, AUH and AAN as alternates...

On paper it all works out beautifully....if you are the only one diverting...

Twitter seems to think everyone got out alright. Let's hope so.

There appears not to have been a 7700 squawk.

Look again.
He probably was talking about the involved aircraft as he posted the FR24 radar track. No holding could hint that there were no prior indications that something was wrong?

Windshear looks to have been reported, whether that had any influence.

From the video it looks like the plane held together pretty well.

I just hope everyone made it out before the fire took hold.

OMDB 030900Z 11021KT 3000 BLDU NSC 49/07 Q0993 WS ALL RWY TEMPO 35015KT 1500

110/21 then 350/15 tempo with WS. Surely this has something to do with it, if they had a tech issue, probably time to divert.

the wing is still the right way up, and attached it seems, but the engine has detached and is sitting on the runway facing the wrong way.
