An Envoy Canadair CRJ-700, registration N529EA performing flight MQ-3504/AA-3504 from Pittsburgh,PA to Chicago O'Hare,IL (USA), was on final approach to Chicago's runway 04R, low visibility procedures were in effect, and was cleared to land when tower cancelled the landing clearance and the crew went around. The aircraft was vectored for another approach to runway 04R about 13 minutes later when the crew needed to go around a second time this time due to an unsafe gear indication. The aircraft climbed to 6000 feet and entered a hold while the crew was working the related checklists. Working the checklists the crew was able to lower and lock the gear and performed a safe landing on runway 04R about 30 minutes after the second go around.

A passenger reported the crew first announced they had to go around due to a spacing issue. During the second approach the crew announced that the gear did not lock and they needed to go around again, in the holding the crew advised they were able to lock the gear down. The aircraft landed safely and was received by emergency services.
