Emirates Airline Plane in Flames on Runway After Crash Landing

Posted by Anup Baral August 3rd, 2016 :
An Emirates plane has caught fire at Dubai International Airport after it crash-landed with 300 people on board. Footage taken by a British passenger in another plane showed the aircraft skidding as it hit the tarmac resting on its right wing, with smoke pouring out of one side. Photos showed the smoke thickening after the plane came to a stop, rising into the air in a black plume before a fireball exploded from the front section on Wednesday afternoon.

Krishna Bhagavathula, who was at the airport, wrote on Twitter that the flames had burned through the top of the aircraft before being brought under control.
