Apparently they tried to land and had a rolling moment to the right just before touch down, causing a hard touch down which resulted in the right hand engine contacting the ground.  They decided to go around and at some point received an unsafe gear indication.  On the second touch down the right main gear collapsed and the aircraft after slowing came to rest almost 180 degree askew of the runway center line.  No injuries reported, but I bet that's one flight they'll never forget.

some video from the second attempt to land
another good video from 2 points of view
video taken by tourist showing engine on fire while on it's second approach

So sad of them. I want to know that with the latest technology and extreme equipment in aviation we still see these kind of cases. What is the reason behind that?

We're still working on developing the necessary technology and/or equipment to control Mother Nature.
