Shocking footage has captured a United Airline plane which blew a tire after taking off from Newark Liberty International Airport.

However, the plane did not stop and continued with takeoff flying towards Portland International Airport in Oregon.

The footage shows the plane land successfully in Oregon after blowing the tire.

All passengers from flight 1551 arrived safely at their destination.

According to KOIN-TV the plane landed at 10:30 pm local time.

The police and emergency fire crew were on the the runway waiting for the plane to land, which it did without any further sparks.

When speaking to FOX 12 Oregon, a passenger on board the flight reported a loud bang during take off but went on to add that the on board crew handled the situation professionally.

The flight crew followed procedure and demonstrated how to properly brace as well as moving four passengers who were better suited to handling the emergency exits if necessary.

Kyle Hobbs, an on board passenger said: “When we were taking off out of Newark, the plane kind of shuddered as the nose lifted. After that, everything was fine.”

“About 90 minutes before we landed, the crew came out, made sure everyone was awake. Told us we were going to have a problem with the landing gear and to prepare for the worst”.

When speaking to KOIN a PDX spokesperson, Kama Simonds, said: “We received word of an aircraft inbound reporting an issue and we had crews standing by to assist”.

Another passenger Mateo Agemo, told KATU-TV that cabin crew cautioned the passengers at the back of the plane that they need to be prepared.

If complications did arise, these passengers would have had to move towards the front of the plane.

Mateo explained, “I was in the back so I was a little bit nervous but everyone on the plane was nervous. The staff made everyone quiet and relaxed”.

This is not the first time a complicated landing has been caught on camera. Earlier in the year a British Airways plane was prevented from landing due to strong winds.

The footage shows the plane abort landing due to the gail force winds caused by Storm Eleanor.
