The BA295 flight, which was due to fly from Heathrow to Chicago, was diverted back due to a “technical issue” after it lost two of its five sets of wheels.
Passenger Ben de Pear tweeted that the captain had explained the plane was “stuck” on the runway after landing “on three sets of wheels rather than 5.”
The plane was met by fire engines and passengers led off the British Airways aircraft.
Passengers and their families hailed the pilot a “hero” for the landing.
The Heathrow runway was closed for short period of time, causing delays to some flights.
Passengers were able to re-board a plane to Chicago few hours after the emergency landing.
