Plane makes emergency landing at JFK

NEW YORK (AP) - A jet carrying 60 passengers from Atlanta to suburban New York having landing gear problems has made an emergency landing at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York City.

Port Authority Spokesman Steve Coleman says Delta Connection Flight 4951, operated by Atlantic Southeastern Airlines, landed safely at about 8:20 p.m. Saturday. He says there were no reports of injuries or fire.

Atlantic Southeastern Airlines spokesman Jarek Beem says all passengers exited safely through the main door onto the tarmac and were bused to the terminal.

He says the airline was working with the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board to investigate the landing gear problem.
