Emirates flight EK521 from Thiruvananthapuram crash-landed at the Dubai International Airport earlier today. The 300 people on board were evacuated safely in nick of time. The reason behind the crash-landing is still not known, but eyewitnesses said the landing gear collapsed as the plane hit the runway. Huge plumes of smoke could be seen rising from the aircraft. The plane appeared to have landed on its belly, and images showed thick black smoke rising into the sky.
