WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Officials say a United Airlines flight has landed safely after being diverted to a Wichita airport because of landing gear issues.
Airport Police and Fire Capt. Randy Currie says the plane that took off Wednesday night from Denver International Airport had experienced landing gear issues, prompting a request to land at Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport.
The Bombardier Q-400 aircraft was operated by Republic Airlines and was headed to the Kansas City International Airport in Missouri.
A Republic Airlines representative says 67 passengers and a four-member crew were onboard Flight 4912. He says a maintenance crew is investigating the issue.
Currie says United Airlines offered to put the passengers in a hotel overnight. He also says the airline service used two buses to shuttle about 30 passengers to Kansas City.
