United Airlines Airbus 319 Landing Gear Collapses at Newark

As the industry questions the cause of the landing gear malfunction at Newark Liberty International Airport, no injuries have been reported.

The passengers had go crouch down in their seats and prepare for a crash landing. The crew was able to bring the airliner to a safe belly landing and all 48 passengers and 5 crew members slid down emergency chutes to safety once the plane came to a stop.Some passengers report the landing was smoother that other landings they have experienced at Newark.

The trouble became apparent when Flight 634 from Chicago was on its descent to the Newark airport. The passengers were aware of trouble when the plane pulled up and started to circle the airport instead of landing. The pilot then announced there was a problem with the landing gear and they should brace themselves for a crash.

An investigation is underway.
