World News: A Boeing 767 operated by LOT Polish Airlines crash landed at Warsaw's Chopin Airport Tuesday after its landing gear failed to deploy, reports the Associated Press.

None of the 230 passengers on board the flight from Newark International Airport to Warsaw were injured, according to CNN.

The technical problem with the aircraft's landing gear was detected by pilots ahead of time. According to the New York Post, the plane circled over the airport for more than an hour before the pilots dumped fuel to prepare for a belly landing. Airport personnel also spread a fire-retardant substance on the runway before the plane touched down.

Chopin Airport will reopen on Wednesday.

The French Rothschilds patronised Chopin the pianist after whom the airport is probably named.
