126 passengers were on board a Red Air flight from the Dominican Republic when its landing gear failed, causing the jet to crash land at Miami International Airport.
Although no significant injuries were recorded, the jet quickly caught fire, according to police. On a Red Air flight arriving from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic to Miami International Airport in the United States, the landing gear collapsed, starting a fire.
Three of the 126 passengers on board the aircraft were taken to a hospital for treatment of minor wounds, he added. From the plane to the terminal, additional people were transported by bus.
The fire had been put out and fuel spill mitigation efforts were underway, according to a tweet from Miami-Dade Fire Rescue.
The plane appeared to have come to rest in grass next to a runway in TV news footage, and it appeared like white firefighters’ chemicals had been used to cover the ground around the plane and the aircraft as well. At least three fire trucks were stationed close by.
