Still seems unclear as to the cause as crew appeared now to know there was no landing gear down, as it appears?

Congratulations to the Pilots and Cabin Crew team, saviours of all the passengers, (who i have to say did not appear to act responsibly trying for luggage!)

Remarkable that the crew managed to get everyone off, ultimately this is where we need them most. Of concern would be the low cost Airlines with less staff on board and more passenger numbers, perhaps then these cramped seat configurations would be questioned, impairing exit with 50 more on the same aircraft, tighter seats, smaller aisle width!
The aircraft appear burnt out, after the evacuation, and of course we shall know what caused this, and the explosion.

The Firefighter who lost his life gave it for the sake of others, and my thoughts are with his family, but his heroic efforts for others, ultimately a great sacrifice for his fellow man.
