Officials say a Great Lakes Airlines passenger plane with 10 people aboard landed safely at Pierre Regional Airport after the pilot reported problems with the landing gear system.
Mike Isaacs, the airport manager, says the pilot reported an in-flight emergency at 10:40 a.m. Sunday. Issacs says the pilot could not tell if the gear was properly in place for the landing.
The plane circled the airport several times so observers on the ground could observe the landing gear.
The plane landed at 11 a.m. No injuries were reported.
There were eight passengers and two pilots on the plane. Issacs did not know whether the flight originated in Denver or Minneapolis.
