INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An American Airlines regional jet has landed safely at Indianapolis International Airport after the pilots reported a possible problem with the aircraft’s landing gear.

Airport spokeswoman Kendall Bybee says the pilots had thought the landing gear of the twin-engine jet might not be locked as the plane that was headed from Chicago to Indianapolis was approaching Indianapolis’ main airport for landing Saturday.

But Bybee says the landing gear was in fact locked and the plane carrying 30 passengers landed without incident just after noon Saturday and there were no injuries.

Bybee says a fire response crew was summoned to the scene as a precaution as the plane approached for landing, but that crew wasn’t needed because the jet landed without any problems.
