The UAE GCAA published the first interim report on their investigation progress on Emirates Boeing 777 accident last year.
The Accident occurred on 3 August 2016 and involved an Emirates Boeing 777-300 Aircraft, registration A6-EMW, operating a scheduled passenger flight EK521, that had departed Trivandrum International Airport (VOTV), India, at 0506 UTC for Dubai International Airport (OMDB), the United Arab Emirates.
At approximately 0837:38 UTC, the Aircraft impacted the runway during an attempted go-around at Dubai International Airport.
The Aircraft sustained substantial structural damage as a result of the impact and its movement along the runway and was eventually destroyed by fire. Twenty-one passengers, one flight crewmember, and four cabin crewmembers sustained minor injuries. Four cabin crewmembers sustained serious injuries. Approximately nine minutes after the Aircraft came to rest, a firefighter was fatally injured as a result of the explosion of the center wing fuel tank.
A large number of aircraft systems were tested with the assistance of the manufacturers and analysis of the data downloaded indicates that there were no Aircraft systems or engine abnormalities up to the time of the Accident.
