A Miami Air Boeing 737-800, registration N732MA, built 2001, operating as Flight BSK293 from Cuba’s Leeward Point Field at Guantánamo Bay experienced a runway overrun upon landing at Jacksonville Naval Air Station/Towers Field (KNIP), Jacksonville, Florida. The airplane came to rest in the shallow waters of St. Johns River, sustaining substantial damage. The 140 passengers and crew survived and initially there have been no reported injuries.

Also, Fiji Airways leased Miami Air International B738 N739MA in April and it is mainly flying to BNE and NZ from Nadi.
