At approximately 6:30 a.m. local time Friday morning, smoke was seen coming from a United Airlines flight departing from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) shortly before takeoff when the aircraft’s brakes locked up, according to reports. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) confirmed that the flight’s pilot reported a potential engine problem as the source of the smoke. The flight returned to the terminal, and United Airlines claims that it is currently investigating the incident.
