But the plane suffered a "mechanical problem shortly after takeoff," United Airlines said in a statement, explaining that an initial inspection points to a problem with the hydraulic pump.

"It remained in the air to burn fuel and then landed safely," the airline stated, "Passengers have disembarked and a new plane was scheduled to depart in the morning."

A flight history map shows the aircraft circled several times over the ocean off the New Jersey coast before landing in Newark at 1 a.m. Thursday.

The plane, a Boeing 777-200, landed after the crew reported an "emergency," the Federal Aviation Administration said, saying it is conducting an investigation.
