Two runways at Miami International Airport remained closed Thursday as investigators continued to look into what caused a plane's gear to collapse during Tuesday's fiery crash landing.
Airport officials said two of MIA's four runways remained closed while National Transportation Safety Board crews inspected the wreckage of the Red Air plane, which still remained on the runway.
According to MIA, the plane was moved overnight from the south runway and is now on the diagonal runway as of Friday morning. Crews are now working on preparing the south runway to re-open, possibly sometime Friday, MIA said.
Locals may still be able to view the aircraft on the diagonal runway from Perimeter Road.
The runway closures have caused some delays at the airport, with just 66% of all flights departing on time on Wednesday, officials said.
Officials said the aircraft could be removed and the runways reopened as early as Friday.
Red Air Flight 203 from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, had landed around 5:30 p.m. Tuesday when the landing gear in the nose of the plane collapsed.
Footage showed the plane skidding down the runway on its belly before catching fire, sending large plumes of black smoke into the air
The MD-82 jetliner was carrying 130 passengers and 10 crew members, Red Air said in a statement. Three people were taken to the hospital for minor injuries and later released, officials said.
The Federal Aviation Administration is also investigating the incident.
