A United Airlines flight from San Francisco to Chicago made an emergency landing at O’Hare International Airport (ORD) on Tuesday night.

Flight UA698 had an “issue with its landing gear,” a United spokesperson told TPG in an emailed statement. According to flight tracking site FlightRadar24, the Boeing 757 aircraft circled the airport for a bit before finally landing at ORD at 8:26pm local time. It was reportedly scheduled to land at 8:20pm.

It wasn’t immediately clear what the issue with the landing gear was, but the airline said that there were no injuries on board. United also said it “arranged transport for passengers from the aircraft to the airport terminal” and apologized to flyers for the inconvenience.
