United Airlines 757 bursts tyres on landing at Newark

An investigation is underway into how a United Airlines aircraft tyres blew out whilst landing at Newark's Liberty International Airport on Saturday afternoon, sending it skidding to the edge of runway 22 left.

The United Airlines Boeing 757 jet was operating flight UA627, with 166 passengers on board, from Denver and was coming in to land at approximately 1300 local time.  The airport was closed for a period before a reduced operation was reinstated.

According to local media, a number of passengers on the aircraft suffered minor injuries during the incident, however, none are reported to be serious and most refused medical treatment.
