Red Air MD-82 Crashes While Landing at Miami

by Matt Falcus

A McDonnell Douglas MD-82 operated by Red Air Dominicana has crashed while landing at Miami International Airport.

The aircraft, operating with 126 people on board, suffered a landing gear collapse during the landing rollout, which resulted in it departing the runway and coming to a halt with a fire developing on its right wing.

All passengers safely evacuated the aircraft using slides, with three sustaining injuries.

Miami Airport’s fire service safely extinguished the fire shortly after arriving.

The aircraft travelled through some of the instrument landing infrastructure at the airport, and aircraft following it on approach were ordered to go around and land on alternate runways.

The aircraft involved in the accident was HI1064 (53027/1805). Built in 1990, it had operated for the airline since February 2021, and started its life as N16545 with American Airlines.

Note how many passengers put their luggage ahead of the safety of others.

I am amazed at how stupid or maybe selfish some people are collecting all their belongings before they get off. Glad it was a good result in the end
