A Republic Airways Embraer ERJ-175 on behalf of American Airlines, registration N404YX performing flight AA-4965 from Memphis,TN to Washington National,DC (USA) with 69 people on board, landed on Washington's runway 01 at 15:53L (19:53Z) and was rolling out when the crew reported a hydraulic failure, shortly after the crew advised they needed to stop right there on the center line of the runway about 1800 meters/5900 feet down the runway, they think they had blown a couple of tyres and weren't able to move. Tower instructed another aircraft on approach to go around and told the Embraer crew that no smoke was visible from their aircraft even with binoculars. Emergency services reported the aircraft had all its tyres blown, there was tyre debris on the runway. Emergency services requested to stop all movements on the airport for emergency vehicles to be able to drive around as needed, all runways were closed as result. The passengers disembarked via mobile stairs.
