Damn. Maybe they spent too much time and fuel troubleshooting the gear. FCOM can be a real rabbit-hole.

I'm guessing you haven't seen the pictures from the go-around with the bottoms of both engines blackened from where they scraped the runway during the almost landing with the gear up.

Reportedly after becoming airborne again. Engines reportedly failed due to mechanical damage soon thereafter.

Wow that's a strange one. Looks like an unstable approach where they forgot the gear, went around after scraping the engines, and then both failed due to the damage.

The rat is out, which happens with dual generator failure...or when they arenít turning.

So, were they troubleshooting the great prior to scraping the engines on the runway? What a crazy scenario!

Avherald says they were T/S nose gear, which was why they did the GA.
