LOT Flight 16, the airline’s redeye flight from Newark to Warsaw, Boeing 767-300ER, departed Newark Liberty International Airport Monday night carrying 230 passengers. While on approach to Warsaw, the crew discovered the landing gear would not deploy.

After an hour of circling while attempting to resolve the malfunction, the pilots elected to dump fuel and make a belly landing. A small fire was extinguished, but no one on the plane was hurt.

Warsaw Chopin Airport is closed until Wednesday.
