Learjet makes safe emergency landing
ST. LOUIS – A Learjet with landing gear problems circled an airport outside St. Louis for about an hour and a half Monday before it was diverted to St. Louis-Lambert International Airport, where it safely made an emergency landing.
Eight passengers and pilot walked off the small aircraft and were shuttled away soon after. No injuries were reported, officials said.
The business-class Learjet 45 was headed from Wooster, Ohio, to St. Louis Downtown Airport in Cahokia, Ill., when it reported trouble with its landing gear just before noon CST, airport officials said. Emergency crews with fire trucks and ambulances gathered at the Cahokia airport as the plane circled overhead to burn off fuel before attempting a landing.
