    Emirates flight EK521 - Crash landing

    Emirates jet crashed as gear went up for 2nd landing attempt

    Early report is out. Failure to position correctly the throttle during the go-around attempt.

    it does suggest that the pilots did not manually throttle the engines beyond idle until 12 seconds after lifting back off — just three seconds before the plane struck the ground.
    The 777 is an amazing airframe. It's not the first time that a full load of passengers survives a very hard landing.

    Flight EK521 go-around incident (plane destroyed) points to pilot forgetting to push throttle fully forward

    Just 10s elapsed between the sounding of a cockpit alarm, which appears to have triggered the aborted landing, and the retraction of the undercarriage.
    [...]
    Destruction of Emirates flight EK521 might also add a further twist to the complexity of training pilots to handle such events effectively. If the cockpit alarm, warning of a long landing, proves to have been the trigger event for the go-around, investigators will have to explore the decision process that led the crew to abort touchdown when some 3km of runway remained.
