Plane makes emergency landing at Newark

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

An Air India flight had to make an emergency landing at Newark Liberty International Airport on Sunday after an engine fire broke out shortly after take-off.

Witnesses reported seeing Air India Flight 144 flying low, as it circled Newark and dumped fuel.

According to the Port Authority, the pilot reported smoke just after takeoff.

Crews tried to tow the plane away, but couldn't because it had multiple blown tires.

All 313 passengers, as well as the crew, were not injured.

The airline worked to get the travelers onto other flights.

It was initially believed that the incident was caused by a bird strike. That apparently has been ruled out as the cause.

    For decades, making some quick cash was the main drive behind so many who took the ride down the parkway to Atlantic City. But with so much to choose from nowadays, it looks like Atlantic City is in a lot of trouble.
