    Continental Express E-145 emergency landing at EWR

    Nothing too alarming but a Continental Express (Express jet) E-145 just made an emergency landing on 22L due to a a hydraulic promblem. It is currently now at the intersection of taxiway November/Papa while its being given a runway inspection. No contamination/spill of hyrdraulic fluid. Jetlink Flight #2043 was scheduled from Newark to Burlington, VT. I first learned about the promblem as I was listening to EWR Live ATC when the flight toke off 22R. When the flight contacted NY Departure, the pilot complained of a hydraulic problem. It was told to turn right toward the North and maintain 3,000ft and join into the approach pattern for EWR. From what I heard, the controller and pilots did a great job of being calm and cool. Both did a professinal job of handling the promblem. You really never know when this could happen. Good thing the flight landed safely and all passengers and crew are safe and sound.
    Aspires to become an Air Traffic Controller at Kennedy Tower.

    I am glad to hear it wasn't more serious.
    Great job to the flight crew and ATC on a job well done.
