The airline, which just started flying last November, said in a statement that the plane, which was flying from Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic to Miami, had 130 passengers and 10 crew members.
The Federal Aviation Administration reported that the aircraft's landing gear collapsed before a hard landing at 17:45 p.m.

Paola Garcia said she realized something was wrong when the plane began to rock from side to side. She said that she then saw the windows crack and the wing catch fire.

Yamil Elneser said the plane was shaking and they felt like the plane landed without landing gear before the plane went off the runway.

“I feel alive again. I thought I was going to die,” Garcia said.

Passengers were evacuated on an inflatable slide due to swirling smoke.

“We saw smoke and flames and got out of the plane through the emergency exit on the top of the wings, and then went down from the wing,” said Alfredo Machado.

Miami-Dade firefighters arrived to find the plane's wing on fire. Buses at the airport took passengers to the terminal, where some of them were reunited with loved ones.

The National Transportation Safety Board said a federal team would continue its investigation on June 22.
RED Air confirmed in a statement that the Air Accident Investigation Commission of the Dominican Republic will also conduct an investigation.
