An airplane carrying 167 passengers made a safe emergency landing at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport after reporting problems with landing gear on Tuesday.
US Airways Flight 1232 left Montego Bay, Jamaica, at 3:20 p.m. Tuesday and headed toward Charlotte, N.C.
During the flight, the pilot reported hydraulic failure and decided to make an emergency landing in Fort Lauderdale. The plane landed safely at 4:55 p.m. and no one was hurt, said Gregory Meyer, a spokesman for the airport.
However, the plane is now stuck on a commercial runway at the airport.
“Whatever mechanical problem they’ve having, it’s not allowing the aircraft to move off our runway,” Meyer said.
The grounded aircraft doesn’t have a major impact on air traffic right now, he said.
If the landing gear can’t be fixed, US Airways will reroute passengers through Fort Lauderdale.
