United Express lands at SFO with partial brakes Bay City News Service

SAN FRANCISCO - A spokeswoman for San Francisco International Airport said a United Express plane landed safely with only partial use of its brakes and flaps.

Spokeswoman Kim Dickie said the plane landed at 11:30 p.m. yesterday after the pilot reported having difficulties with the hydrolic system onboard the plane. Dickie said she did not know where the plane was coming from but said the plane's destination was San Francisco.

Dickie said all passengers and crew were safe and the plane arrived at the terminal without further incident.
