A Red Air Dominicana McDonnell Douglas MD-82, registration HI1064 performing flight L5-203 from Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic) to Miami,FL (USA) with 130 passengers and 10 crew, landed on Miami's runway 09 at 17:37L (21:37Z) maintaining routine communication but suffered the collapse of its landing gear. Tower pressed the crash button and instructed the next approaches to go around. The MD-82 came to a stand still off the runway with a fire developing at the right hand wing, where a fuel spill occurred. The aircraft was evacuated via slides. Three people received minor injuries and were taken to the hospital. Emergency services quickly extinguished the fire.

Miami's Emergency Services reported they are on scene of an aircraft fire, their crews have been able to control the fire at the left hand wing and to mitigate the fuel spill. All people on board were checked for injuries, three have been hospitalized.

The airline reported the aircraft encountered technical difficulties after landing.

ADS-B Data transmitted by the aircraft suggest the aircraft was on center line of the runway until slowing below 80 knots over ground, then veered left, crossed the green between runways 09/27 and 12/30 and taxiways T8 and T taking the glideslope antenna mast for runway 30 with it and came to a stop just before runway 12/30.

The NTSB have dispatched a Go-Team to Miami to investigate the occurrence.

On Jun 23rd 2022 the NTSB reported: "The airplane experienced a collapse of the left main landing gear during landing on Runway 9, departed the runway and came to rest in a grassy area between runway 9 and 23. A post-crash fire on the right side of the airplane followed the runway excursion." The CVR and FDR were recovered.
