the landing gear didn't collapse just out of nowhere. There was an article on CNN explaining that there was a construction on the runway and they cut the runway short. This website gives false information.

of course like your web site but you have to check the spelling on a few of your posts. A couple of them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it very troublesome to inform the truth nevertheless I'll certainly come again again.

That threshold, looks like unfinished upgrades to the airport. Should've been clearly marked, and pilots, more training. Oh shit!

It seems brakes didn't work and landing gear collapsed due to high threshold...?

a landing gear just does not collapse like that. There must be far more behind that story.
