Jet without nose landing gear lands safely


SANFORD, Fla. (AP) "” A plane with malfunctioning landing gear touched down safely at Orlando Sanford International Airport on Thursday afternoon, officials said.
The Allegiant Air flight from Portsmouth, N.H. landed without its nose landing gear. None of the 157 passengers on board were injured during the landing, Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said.

Passengers and crew evacuated the aircraft via slides. A woman sprained her ankle, but refused treatment, airport authorities said.

"The crew reported a hydraulics problem related to the nose gear," Bergen said.

The plane circled the area while communicating with the base about how to proceed before landing safely.
