An American Eagle Embraer ERJ-145, registration N657AE performing flight MQ-4069 from Chicago O'Hare,IL to Tulsa,OK (USA) with 28 passengers and 3 crew, was climbing out of O'Hare's runway 09R when upon checking in with departure the crew reported they were having gear issues, probably were returning to O'Hare and needed the longest runway available. The crew levelled off at 5000 feet working relevant checklists on delay vectors, then declared emergency and was advised they could expect runway 10. The crew requested emergency services on stand by and advised they'd do an overweight landing. They had a gear disagree message, didn't know any of the actual gears' positions and would most likely be able to vacate the runway. Departure offered a flyby via runway 10 which was accepted by the crew. The crew requested tower to verify positions of all three gear struts during the low approach to runway 10. The aircraft climbed back to 4000 feet, tower reported all three gear struts appeared down. The aircraft landed on runway 10 about 20 minutes after the low approach and about 40 minutes after departure, but veered off the runway and came to a stop off the runway on paved surface of the runway end safety area of 14R at about 08:38L (13:38Z). No injuries occurred.

A replacement aircraft is estimated to reach Tulsa with a delay of 3:15 hours.
