United passengersAccording to airport and airline officials, passengers were stranded on the Newark Airport tarmac for hours on Sunday after some of their plane’s tyres burst while landing.

 
A spokesperson for the airline said United Airlines Flight 961 was landing in Newark around 1:30 p.m. from Frankfurt when the Boeing 777-222 “experienced tire issues”.

 
“I almost went flying out of my seat,” passenger Briana Oakland said.

 
No one was injured, but several passengers were shaken up. “I was scared,” Oakland said.

 
Heinz Roth described the landing as “exceptionally nice,” but he said it felt like the plane hit two large potholes moments later. “That’s when the tires popped,” he said.

 
The passengers were eventually transported from the plane to Terminal B, where family and friends awaited.
