Last night, an RAF Tornado; ZG705 made an emergency landing in Malta at around 21:00, after suffering from gearbox problem. Upon landing, flames were seen around the undercarriage and the fire department were on the scene as the aircraft came to a halt. This picture was taken after the crew evacuated the aircraft: http://www.airport-data.com/aircraft/photo/670927L.html
