A United Express flight 6073 from Toronto to Houston blew a tire during an unscheduled landing at Louisville International Airport Thursday morning after an in-flight mechanical issue, a spokeswoman for Louisville Regional Airport Authority said.

Live aerials from Air 3 showed all the tires on both main gears of the Embraer 175 were flat.

Airport Authority spokeswoman said the plane is disabled on the west runway, which is now closed. There is no impact to flights, which are being rerouted to the east runway. Chaudoin was uncertain how long it would take to reopen the west runway.

77 people were aboard the plane, including crew members. Passengers were being taken to the terminal.
