Canadair CL-600-2C10 Regional Jet CRJ-702, N157GJ: Incident occurred March 14, 2015 at O'Hare International Airport (KORD), Chicago, Illinois

An airplane was forced to make an emergency landing at O'Hare International Airport after it experienced a mechanical problem upon the landing Saturday afternoon.

The GoJet plane, operated by United Airlines, touched the ground without its nose gear in place for the landing. After it landed, the plane sat on the runway with the nose still touching the ground.

The flight originated in Grand Rapids, Mich., and was scheduled to arrive in Chicago at about 3:30 p.m., according to Karen Pride, a spokesperson for the airport.

Despite the missing gear, the plane landed without incident and nobody was injured, Pride said.
