CALGARY — The crew of an Air Canada Express flight had to make an emergency landing at the Calgary International Airport when concerns surfaced that the front landing gear had not locked in place.

Flight AC-7212, which originated in Lethbridge, Alta., requested emergency crews be on standby upon arrival in Calgary around 7:00 a.m. Tuesday.

The plane, carrying 15 passengers, circled the airport to burn off extra fuel before coming in.

Air Canada says the aircraft landed safely on its main landing gear, but the nose wheel collapsed when it came to a stop.

No one was hurt and the passengers were bussed to the terminal.

Airport officials say their operations were not affected by the emergency and that the aircraft is being inspected to determine what went wrong. (CFFR, CHQR, CTV Calgary)
