Xiamen 737 crash lands at Manila?
 
Chinese Boeing 737 crash-lands at Manila airport reports https://www.rt.com/news/436149-china...crash-landing/[img]blob:https://www.pprune.org/b8dd0dbc-8694-420a-985d-3ac471a694bd[/img]

A "good" landing (one you can walk away from.) Looks like they were holding to deal with a mechanical problem (gear? flaps?) that they couldn't resolve, and finally made the best touchdown they could. Left the runway and dropped left engine (not necessarily in that order).

(Yes, the flaps appear to be down - but how far?)

Anyway, all will be revealed eventually.

I disagree. Looks like they went around for weather on the first try and did not report any problem to the tower on the second attempt.

Check out the 1530Z tower tape at liveatc.net for both approaches:

underfire that is a very typical holding pattern for Manila even in good weather.

Interesting to hear the Airbus Master Warning Ecam in the background of PR469 radio transmission on the Go Around, Flap Overspeed?

Just made it out of MNL myself about an hour before their first approach, big CBs all around the field, +-20 knots windshear...

Folks,
My condolences to the tec. crew, and a treacherous runway strikes again would be my guess, in pretty difficult met. conditions.
I know this runway all too well.
Tootle pip!!

If the captain is an expat he can definitely forget about his safety bonus 😌

Looks to me based upon the purported touchdown video and the end result, that they may have omitted to lower the UC.
