Great job by the fire service in making sure the grass doesn't burn too much!

Really?!

I was impressed that the fire-fighters followed long established rules of fire survival...they did not skirt the fire track and head to plane...they extinguished it all along the track to the plane and in so doing drifted their spray all along the way and into the plane fire assuring it did not restart behind them and run in once again.
Well done all around. A frightening scenario handled by a bundle of cool folks.

Met report shows "Wind calm", doesn't it? Looks like quite a tailwind in the video.

If it was a hard landing, it must have been a really hard one. The gear on a 733 is built of girders. There must be more to this than we know. Congratulations to the crew and fire service for the fact everybody survived.

In one of the videos, a young woman (supposedly a passenger & happy with herself to be a "journalist") tells the AC "took land right wing first, then BROKE and caught fire" -this translated directly from Spanish.

What I don't understand is why few (if any) of the passengers have their hand luggage with them?

Nope, was created almost 8 hours after the accident.

Maybe they didn't have any?

Passengers leaving overwing exit carrying bags https://youtu.be/jF4Rr7nVgAU?t=3 despite fire and smoke obviously visible on starboard side.

Just a few seconds later, there is a small explosion on the starboard side which spooks the camera lady, and then when she pans back to a/c the fire is burning more fiercely, there are several passengers/crew near front exit, and passengers running from the rear exit. A close call.

I am guessing that the "flames-run away vs its ok-retrieve luggage" equilibrium swung sufficiently far into the "run away" part of the equation.

Good job by all concerned though.

I was on an Indian Airlines 732 that bounced twice when landing at Poona (Pune) India. Nothing broke.

We (us older ones) comment about people taking video with their cameras at disaster scenes, however they are good to watch and actually provide valuable information.

So far I've seen one report say the starboard wing struck the perimetre fence, one say that the wing touched down first when they landed, and now this:

The fire likely started when the wing scraped the runway, Interior Minister Carlos Basombrio said.

"The plane couldn't stop on the runway and they made a manoeuvre to stop it with the wing and that appears to have caused the fire," Basombrio told reporters on local broadcaster RPP.
I find it difficult to imagine the manoeuvre to stop a 737 with the wing, let alone the pilot who would attempt it...

Non-aviators (in this case Interior Minister Carlos Basombrio) do make us laugh :

In this video (bad sound) the pilot Dennis Khan says almost nothing except that all pax and crew were evacuated in a safe condition.

Obviously very glad to see everyone walking this one out. To a certain extent it would qualify as a successful landing!

That being said 24h after the event there doesn't seem to be even the beginning of a narrative as of what happened...
