landing soon after taking off at 9 a.m.. The pilot of United Airlines

Flight 23 bound for Los Angeles returned the aircraft to the terminal safely.

"As it was departing the runway, there was a report of flames
coming out of engine number two and as a precautionary measure
the pilot brought the plane back," said spokesman Greg Trevor of
the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which manages
the region's major airports. "The aircraft taxied to the terminal
under its own power and is being evaluated."
