No injuries reported as passenger plane makes emergency landing at Newark Liberty Airport
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) ' Newark Liberty Airport has been shut down after a commercial passenger plane with hydraulic problems was forced to make an emergency landing.
But officials say none of the roughly 70 people on board was injured.
Authorities say the plane landed shortly before 7 p.m. Monday, not long after the pilot reported a landing gear malfunction. But further details on the problem and the aircraft were not immediately available.
Newark firefighters were dispatched to the scene, but found no smoke or fire aboard the plane.
A message left for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates the airport, was not immediately returned.
