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.

A spokesperson for the Dubai media office, which represents the Emirate's government, said flight EK521 was arriving on schedule from India when it "crash-landed".

"All passengers were evacuated safely and no injuries have been reported so far," a statement added.

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
