Plane with landing gear problem lands safely at CVG

HEBRON, Ky. (AP) - A commuter flight has made a safe landing in northern Kentucky after the pilot couldn't retract the landing gear.

Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport spokeswoman Barb Schempf says Jet Link flight 2424 took off about 5 p.m. Sunday and the pilot radioed the tower, saying the gear wouldn't retract into the plane's belly.

The flight - which was headed to Newark, N.J. - returned to the airport and landed without incident. Schempf said the passenger boarded another plane for the flight.

Jet Link is a regional carrier for Continental Airlines.
