US Airways flight makes emergency landing

A US Airways aircraft from Philadelphia was forced to make an emergency landing without its nose gear at Bush intercontinental airport in Houston.

The aircraft landed safely, although photos of the aircraft on Twitter show its nose on the ground.

The nose landing gear was in the “up” position, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

The pilot made several passes over the airport before successfully landed, according to local reports. There were 53 passengers on board and four crew members.

All passengers exited the aircraft on emergency chutes around 9.30pm local time. No injuries were reported.
