NEW YORK (AP) — A Delta Air Lines flight flying from Atlanta to White Plains, New York made an emergency landing at John F. Kennedy International Airport after experiencing landing gear problems.

Port Authority Spokesman Steve Coleman says Flight 4951, operated by Atlantic Southeastern Airlines, landed safely at about 8:20 p.m. Saturday. He says the plane was carrying about 60 passengers and a crew of four.

There were no reports of injuries or fire.

Atlantic Southeastern Airlines spokesman Jarek Beem says all passengers exited safely through the main door and were bused to the terminal where they were being accommodated by Delta representatives.

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