Plane lands without incident at Portland airport

August 14, 2013

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — A commercial airplane carrying 62 passengers has landed without incident at the Portland International Jetport after the pilot radioed ahead with concerns about the plane’s nose gear.

Airport Director Paul Bradbury says the airport received a call at 11:14 a.m. from the pilot of United Airlines flight 4898 from Newark, N.J.

He says airport emergency response vehicles were ready when the plane landed at 11:18 a.m., but that there weren’t any problems. Nobody was injured.

Bradbury says United Airways will inspect the plane, and that it’s possible the plane might have had a faulty indicator.
