A United Airlines plane was forced to make an emergency landing on Sunday at Newark Liberty International Airport, but all 53 people on board were safe.



The plane lurched to one side as the Airbus 319 landed with only two landing wheels in place, and the airport was closed briefly. United Airlines flight 634, which had departed from Chicago and was due to land at the airport in New Jersey, suffered a malfunction in its right landing gear, media reports said.



When the plane finally landed, the 48 passengers and five crew members exited using inflatable emergency slides.
