Dynamic Airways Boeing 767-269ER was scheduled as an international flight from Fort Lauderdale–Hollywood International Airport to Caracas International Airport but while taxiing for departure, the engine caught fire. Before it caught fire, it had been leaking fuel. Everyone managed to get out okay, but fifteen were hospitalized with injuries. The investigation by the NTSB uncovered that the main fuel supply line coupling assembly had disconnected in the wing-to-engine strut above and behind the left engine. The lower inboard portion of the left wing, left engine cowling, and left fuselage center section burned but fire did not penetrate the fuselage. The plane had been in dry storage for approximately 29 months until September 2015.
