No mechanical issues before Emirates crash landing

The UAE investigators examining a 2016 incident involving an Emirates flight in Dubai say there were no mechanical problems leading up to the accident. The August 3 accident destroyed the Boeing 777-300 coming from Thiruvananthapuram, India, but claimed no lives among the 300 passengers and crew. A firefighter was killed in a subsequent explosion of Flight EK521.

In a statement, an Emirates spokesperson said: “Our internal investigation is ongoing which includes a thorough review of all training and operational processes and procedures. Emirates is awaiting the publication of the UAE AAIS Annex 13 final investigation report, at which time any safety directives will be implemented and any safety recommendations will be considered. We continue to extend our full cooperation to the investigators as they work towards the final report.”
