The Wall Street Journal: All passengers escape after jetliner crash-lands, catches fire in Dubai

An Emirates Airline plane arriving from India caught fire upon landing in Dubai on Wednesday, resulting in no fatalities on board even as the broken aircraft was left resting on its belly amid plumes of thick black smoke.

Verified video footage showed the plane skidding to a stop on its belly on the runway, with large sections of the fuselage charred and emergency slides deployed. Emirates offered no details about what caused the accident, but there apparently was no mayday call from the cockpit and early signs pointed away from a fire, mechanical problem or security issue during the descent.
