Circumstances:
Following an uneventful flight from Germany, crew was approaching Antalya's runway 18C and completed the landing checklist. After touch down, aircraft was unstable and deviated from its track to the right. Suddenly, the right main gear collapsed and the right engine nacelle hit the ground. Metal rub the ground and a fire erupted in the right main wheel well. Aircraft eventually came to a complete stop, slightly to the right of the centerline. All 162 occupants deplaned and were uninjured. Aircraft was considered as damaged beyond repair due to severe damages caused by fire.
Probable cause:
It seems that a tyre on the right main gear burst on touch down, causing gear to collapse. A fire erupted, caused by the rubbing of the engine nacelle on ground.
