Aftermath of Emirates crash at Dubai Airport. Investigation Report.

Aftermath of Emirates crash at Dubai Airport. Investigation Report.

“The aircraft was subject to a headwind and reached a height of about 85ft before it began to sink back down to the runway.”
Emirates Boeing 777-300 destroyed in an accident at Dubai was attempting a go-around after a long landing, investigators disclosed.
Investigators state that, as the 777 touched down with its engines at idle power, the crew received an aural warning that the jet had landed long.

The crew opted to execute a go-around and the aircraft became airborne 4s after the warning.

Its flaps started to retract to the ‘20’ position, and the landing-gear lever was activated 2s later.

The inquiry also indicates that the aircraft was still operating with idle thrust, and decelerating, as it attempted to climb away.

It was subject to a headwind and reached a height of about 85ft before it began to sink back down to the runway.

Both pilots realised the airspeed was decreasing and the thrust levers were suddenly pushed from the idle setting to the fully-forward position.

But the thrust command was too late to arrest the 900ft/min sink and the aircraft – pitched 9.5° nose-up and travelling at 125kt – struck the runway with its aft fuselage about 1s after the engine power began to increase.
