There was another landing problem at an area airport, this one in Newark.

A Shuttle America flight, a division of United Airlines, reportedly had problems with its brakes as it approached the airport.

Flight 3531 from Minneapolis landed safely at 7:40 p.m. on Tuesday.

The plane was towed to the gate where passengers all disembarked safely.

The FAA did not reveal the exact issue with the brakes.

Shuttle America released a statement saying: "In response to an instrument indication of a possible mechanical issue, the flight crew of Shuttle America flight 3531, operating from Minneapolis-St. Paul to Newark, New Jersey, declared an emergency and landed without incident in Newark. 70 passengers and four crew members deplaned at the gate.
