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.

On Jul 15th 2022 the NTSB released their preliminary report reporting that both FDR and CVR have been secured and providing that summary of the sequence of events:

The accident flight was the second of the day for the flight crew. The captain was the pilot monitoring, and the first officer (FO) was the pilot flying. The incident flight departed SDQ at 1535 after a 36-minute delay. The aircraft was cleared for the ILS runway 09 at MIA and the crew reported that the approach was normal. The FO stated that the landing was smooth, and they first touched down on the right main gear followed by the left main gear slightly right of centerline. The crew felt an increasing vibration on the left side of the airplane shortly after the left main gear touched down. During the landing roll out the left main gear collapsed, the airplane traveled to the left where it eventually departed the paved surface and impacted the runway 30 glide slope equipment shelter. During departure from the paved surface and impact with the steel and concrete shelter, the airplane’s right main landing gear and nosewheel collapsed, and the fuel tanks were breached. Shortly after the airplane came to a stop, a postcrash fire began on the right wing. All 130 passengers and 10 crew evacuated the airplane, of which 4 passengers sustained minor injuries. MDFR successfully extinguished the post-crash fire, and all airplane occupants were bussed to the terminal.

On Jul 31st 2023 the NTSB opened their investigation docket.
