A U.S. Airways jet at Philadelphia International Airport had to abort its takeoff around 6:30 p.m. Thursday after its front landing gear failed, ABC News is reporting.
An airport spokesperson told CBS that emergency crews were responding to the scene, and all passengers were evacuated from the plane without any serious injuries reported.
The airport issued a ground stop for all air traffic until the plane could be removed from the runway, Philly.com reports. After a few hours, three of the airport’s four runways were reopened, while the runway where the incident occurred remained closed.
