But just in case it doesn't...

The plane was headed in for landing when the pilot discovered the problem.
In a statement, the airline said pilot Captain Myat Moe Aung "followed emergency procedures and did the fuel burn out to reduce the landing weight," before bringing the jet down onto its rear wheels, lowering the nose carefully onto the runway on which it skidded for about 25 seconds before stopping.
There were no casualties or injuries from the incident, the airline confirmed.
Video from inside the plane showed smoke rising from underneath as passengers scrambled to disembark.

Would deploying the slides really be the best choice at that point? The aircraft has stopped, no smoke or fire. IMO, deploying slides would probably cause a few twisted ankles/injuries.

There was smoke in the cabin on landing.

At least they had the presence of mind to use one of the forward doors, which is low to the ground enough that nobody will get hurt.

Fair enough.

(That’s impressive, incidentally.)
It was a good nap. One of those naps where it's crappy outside, so no guilt staying indoors, and all the other chores done. Just chillin' out...

3 hours later Dr was looking over my purple toes and said "Yep, that sucks. Nothing we can do about it. Here's some tape and some Tylenol. If they turn green or start to smell, call us back."

Smell more than normal.
