A PASSENGER on the Emirates plane that crash landed in Dubai has described her horror over the moment the plane burst into flames.“It was actually really terrifying. As we were landing there was smoke coming out in the cabin,” passenger Sharon Maryam Sharji tol AAP.“People were screaming and we had a very hard landing. We left by going down the emergency slides and as we were leaving on the runway we could see the whole plane catch fire. It was horrifying.”
It comes as dramatic footage has emerged from inside an Emirates plane that crash landed and burst into flames in Dubai with two Australians on board. It’s not yet known if two Australians were among the fourteen people hospitalised.
The footage was captured by a passenger on board who posted it on Twitter crediting the “brave cabin crew,” including an Australian co-pilot. Minutes after the video, the plane reportedly exploded, killing one firefighter on the scene. Chaos ensued on the plane as passengers can be heard screaming while the cabin crew opens the emergency exit doors. Passengers can be heard yelling “Jump! Jump! Jump!”
With oxygen masks down, smoke fills the plane as passengers hurriedly grabbed their luggage.Bodies massed together in a rush to evacuate the panic. As the camera pans, passengers are seen running through aisles towards the emergency exit. As the woman holding the camera flies down the inflatable slide, flames from the burning engine can be seen in the background.
The passengers and crew included 226 Indians, 24 British people and 11 Emirates, the airline said. Emirates chairman Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed al-Maktoum said one firefighter, Jasim Issa Mohammed Hassan, died during efforts to douse the flames. Sheik Ahmed said the co-pilot was an Australian with about 7000 hours of flying experience. Passengers evacuated from the flight said that minutes before the flight crash-landed, the pilot made an announcement that he needed to make an emergency landing. No cause has so far been established for the crash.
