A United Boeing 757-300, registration N57857 performing flight UA-571 from Chicago O'Hare,IL to Denver,CO (USA), was climbing out of O'Hare's runway 09R when the crew stopped the climb at 5000 feet reporting a hydraulic problem. While working the checklists the crew requested runway 10L for landing, approach advised they were unable, runway 10L was closed, the crew thus accepted runway 10C and advised they would not be able to vacate the runway and needed to be towed off due to lack of nose gear steering, they'd land at a higher than normal speed due to associated minimum flaps, they'd also have no thrust reversers. Other arriving traffic was redirected to runway 09R. The B753 landed safely on runway 10C at a higher than normal speed (170 knots over ground) and stopped at the end of the runway. The aircraft was towed to the apron.

The flight is now estimated to depart with a delay of 12 hours.
