    the main landing gear caught fire as the plane collapsed during arrival. Both pilots escaped from the plane.

    The plane was arriving from Memphis. Rescue crews quickly sprayed the aircraft with foam on the runway and got the blaze under control.

    I read none of the packages onboard were damaged too. This could easily have been a tragedy.
