No injuries are reported after American Eagle Flight 4069 took off for Tulsa, but returned after the pilot reported problems with the landing gear about 8:30 a.m. The aircraft — an Embraer ERJ-145 twin jet — landed, but skidded off the runway.
There are no reports of any injuries. Passengers exited and were bused back to the terminal.
According to FlightAware.com tracking, the aircraft circled over Elgin and also circled over an area southwest of Aurora and over Naperville before being diverted back to O’Hare International Airport.
Also Thursday morning, all inbound flights were being held at their origin until 11:00 a.m. CDT because of low visibility.
Yesterday an American Eagle commuter plane was clipped by a Beoing 747 cargo plane on a taxiway at O’Hare International Airport.
