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?

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

There appears not to have been a 7700 squawk.

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.

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.
