A passenger airplane belonging to Emirates, a leading airline based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, coming from India, has crash-landed and exploded at Dubai International Airport.

An Emirates passenger jet has crash landed at Dubai Airport this morning before exploding into a massive fireball on the runway.
 
Thick black smoke could be seen rising over Dubai International Airport after an Emirates Boeing 777, carrying 282 passengers and 18 crew was forced into an emergency landing at around 12.45pm local time.
 
There are reports the landing gear for the plane, which had flown from Trivandrum International Airport in India, may not have come down fully prior to touching down. Other reports claimed a fire had started mid-air before landing.

Dramatic footage shows the aircraft exploding in a fireball on the runway, with the force of the blast throwing a huge metal panel from the plane into the air.
 
Incredibly, all passengers are reported to have been evacuated safely before the plane was engulfed in flames. 
 
The captain is believed to have sent out and emergency signal in the moments before the plane was preparing to land.
