Narrative:
RED Air flight 203, a McDonnell Douglas MD-82, HI1064, suffered a left-hand main gear failure during landing on runway 09 at Miami International Airport (MIA), Florida, USA.
The flight departed Santo Domingo International Airport (SDQ), Dominican Republic , at 15:35. The aircraft was cleared for the ILS runway 09 at MIA and the crew reported that the approach was normal. The first officer stated to the NTSB 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 post-crash fire began on the right wing. All 130 passengers and 10 crew evacuated the airplane, of which 4 passengers sustained minor injuries.
