Delays are continuing Sunday at Newark Liberty International Airport, a day after a plane skidded off the runway.
According to FlightAware, at one point Sunday, there were over 70 delays and over 30 cancellations in and out of the airport.
On Saturday, United Airlines Flight 627 from Denver was forced to make a malfunction landing due to several flat tires. Dozens of first responders surrounded the plane to help all 166 passengers get off safely.
Newark Liberty International Airport was briefly shut down due to the incident.
There were some minor injuries but no serious injuries were reported.
One passenger on board says the landing was so fast, no one had time to panic.
The plane has since been removed from the runway. The airport encourages passengers to check with your carrier for possible schedule changes.
