PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A United Airlines flight from Portland, Oregon, to Houston returned to the airport shortly after takeoff Tuesday morning and landed successfully after the crew was unable to raise the aircraft's landing gear.

Portland International Airport spokesman Steve Johnson says the plane made what looked like a smooth landing at about 7 a.m., and there were no reports of injuries.

United says the plane was repaired and left for Houston about two hours later.
