United Airlines passenger jet skids off runway at Newark airport

A United Airlines passenger jet skidded off a runway at Newark Liberty International Airport on Saturday, shutting down service for the New Jersey transportation hub, officials said.

There was no immediate word of any injuries.

Port Authority Police Department cops and Emergency Service Unit teams were sent to the airport following reports that the plane had veered off the runway at about 1:30 p.m. Port Authority did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The airport was immediately shut down. “Due to an airport emergency there are currently no arrivals nor departures from Newark Airport,” Newark Liberty tweeted. “Please check with your carrier before coming to the airport.”

A photo of the scene shared with The News shows the airplane stopped at an angle on the runway with its nose over a grassy median.

Early reports said the plane may have blown a tire when it landed, causing it to veer off the runway.

The mains may be flat, but there appears to be nose section damage. Hard landing, porpoise?

The area of fuselage around the front gear does not look healthy at all.

Not off runway, but hard (extreme hard by the look of the nose gear) landing looking at the pics.Flat tires and bend fuselage around nose gear.

Aircraft damage in report described as "substantial". I wonder if that word means what they think it means.
And perhaps some learned person can explain why the entire airport needs to be closed because of one blocked runway.

I would hazard a guess at it being because there is now a lack of emergency services cover owing to the attendance at this incident.

Since the emergency crew bit has already been addressed...

Substantial in this case means this aircraft isn't going anywhere anytime soon without some major major work.

Based off the latest SDR for this frame, it should have 80,000 hour and 22,000 cycles by now. There is a very non-zero chance the damage is terminal.

The NTSB has instructed that the aircraft in the earlier incident not be moved until investigators arrive.

I would suggest that's a pretty normal request from the NTSB in an incident where there has been what appears to be significant structural damage. Obviously, something rather dramatic has gone on at the very end of that flight.

As mentioned above, and of course there are only the photo's to go on, but that looks terminal for the airframe.

sorry, removed that comment somehow when I added the image....

Considering the age of the airframe, I would agree although Air Europe suffered similar damage to one of its 757s at Madeira and it was repaired by Boeing in about 6 weeks and returned to service. I saw it there a few days after the incident and the damage looked just like this recent one. That was in about 1989?

rear tires flat, front landing gear impaled, reverse thrust still active...that must have been quite the landing....

In related news, United adds another aircraft to their A321XLR order at the Paris airshow..... :}

Apparently lifting and setting onto dollies?

junkyard, some beancounter at United happy about collecting the insurance another bean counter at the insurer checking to see what they will recover if they subrogate the claim and name the pilots...

quietfrog 16th Jun 2019 06:58

Beginnings of the pilot shortage are starting to manifest themselves...

How can the Russians have multiple clear videos of their one important recent landing and we have nothing?
