This claimed to be video of the approach but unverified. Looks pretty normal to me.

Pax carrying bags in evacuation 🤔.
although the pilots did manage to avoid a school, a hospital and a busy playing field while getting her down.

Well, in fact all was well until touchdown!

As for carrying bags during evacuation, that subject has been discussed at infinitum on this forum. I don't condone it but it's human nature to grab what is important to you, especially if you are Dominican and about to enter the USA. And you try and tell a woman that she can't take her handbag with her!

Yes, it did seem to take too long to open that forward door.

Antenna and tower on right side wrapped around wing. That looks like a substantial structure that was collected in the mishap. Seems as if same side as fire. Have to wonder if fuel cell was ruptured as result of impact with it.

RFFS deployment meant that they had to negotiate the evacuating passengers whilst they were approaching the nose of the MD.

Red Air Accident MIA

source

A McDonnell-Douglas MD-80 belonging to Dominican Republic carrier Red Air crashed when making an emergency landing at Miami International airport on 21 June.

”The landing gear of RedAir Flight 203, a McDonnell Douglas MD-80, collapsed when the aircraft landed at Miami International airport around 6:10 p.m. local time today,” the Federal Aviation Administration says. ”The flight originated from Las Americas International airport in the Dominican Republic and was headed to Miami International Airport.”

According to local news reports, all passengers evacuated the aircraft. Miami International airport says that three passengers were transported to hospital with “minor injuries”.

The accident appears to have completely destroyed the aircraft, which carried the registration HI1064. According to Cirium fleets data, the airframe was 31.5 years old.

Red Air operates three aircraft of the ageing type.

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) adds, ”NTSB is sending a team of investigators to Miami following today’s gear collapse and runway excursion of an MD-82 jetliner at Miami International Airport. Investigators will arrive on scene tomorrow.”

The Dominican carrier launched flights in November 2021, and currently operates two daily connections between that country’s capital Santo Domingo and Miami.

One of the local news stations showed cell phone video taken while going down the slide. Only got a glimpse of it, but seems like an odd priority. "Hang on, gotta film this for the 'gram"

"A McDonnell-Douglas MD-80 belonging to Dominican Republic carrier Red Air crashed when making an emergency landing at Miami International airport on 21 June."

What was the original emergency ? I haven't seen it mentioned in other accounts.

I stand to be corrected but there cannot have been an original declared emergency or the fire trucks would have been ready and waiting. The story is that the main port gear collapsed for, as yet, unknown reasons.

Red Air Landing Gear Collapse & Fire, KMIA, 21 Jun 2022

Surprised this hasn't made it to these pages yet. Witnesses are saying a tyre burst on landing, the aircraft bounced and landed hard, collapsing the landing gear and causing a fire. CNN report here: https://www.cnn.com/2022/06/21/us/mi...ire/index.html

The first MD-80, fuselage 909, experienced a landing hard enough for the tail to depart. The gear did not collapse.

Going backwards off the runway and into soft sand will take out the gear. That was demonstrated by fuselage 917.

What did they do to this one?

Happily, on this occasion the grass was short ...
