Incident occurred March 25, 2018 at T.F. Green Airport (KPVD), Warwick, Kent County, Rhode Island

WARWICK, R.I. — Safety personnel assembled at the runway Sunday night for the landing of a United Airlines flight from Chicago that reported trouble with its landing gear.

Roads near the airport were closed to traffic for about a minute, Warwick police Lt. Joseph Petrarca said.

The flight landed without incident at 9:20 p.m., two minutes after its scheduled arrival, said airport spokesman Bill Fischer.

The problem was in the nose-wheel steering, so the aircraft had to be towed to the gate. It was carrying 53 people, Fischer said.

No other flights were affected, Fischer said, and mechanics were inspecting the plane.

The flight had been scheduled to end at Green.

  1. In August 2017. My daughter and I were suppose to take a united express flight out but it was cancelled due to a mechanical problem with the front wheel and steering. The part was in Newark where we would be landing so they had to cancel the flight. I hope this wasn't the same plane with the same problems all this time later.
