HI-515CT enters Miami's customs apron, where it will park for about 20-30 minutes to settle customs affairs, before continuing to the cargo aprons. This procedure was followed by almost all foreign cargo flights arriving at Miami. This "City of Santo Domingo" (built 1956, ex USAF 54-173) ditched in the Atlantic Ocean off Puerto Rico after an engine fire during take-off on 5 April 1990.
