United Airlines flight UA1076 had just taken off from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) when an emergency was declared around 10,000 feet. The Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR)-bound flight encountered an unknown hydraulic issue.
The Boeing 757-200 safely landed back at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) about 80 minutes after taking off.
Aviation Source News is reporting that “the aircraft’s landing gear doors never closed after departure.” It was towed off of the runway shortly after landing. No injuries have been reported.

Anthony’s Take: You never know when there will be an issue on any given flight. It appears that the pilots handled this emergency well and thankfully landed the plane safely back at its origin.
