Fedex Express Flight FX-910, delivering cargo from Memphis to Fort Lauderdale, had its main landing gear collapse during landing, which resulted in a fire on the plane’s left engine.
When the plane made contact with the runway, the left main gear collapsed. Consequently the plane’s left wing and its engine scraped along the tarmac, causing the fire, and dragged along the runway until the plane came to a stop.
A blazing fire ensued. Two flight crew members were on board at the time and both escaped through the right cockpit window. The NTSB has opened an investigation.
