Military Aircraft Makes Emergency Landing In Reno

Authorities say a military aircraft having a problem with its landing gear has safely made an emergency landing at Reno-Tahoe International Airport.

Nevada Air National Guard spokesman Emerson Marcus told the Associated Press in a text message that the plane landed safely Monday morning after circling overhead for at least 30 minutes. Marcus did not immediately offer more details.

The aircraft does not belong to the guard, which has a base in Reno.

Lt. Marie Ortiz, a spokeswoman for Nevada's Nellis Air Force Base, said the aircraft did not appear to be one of theirs.

Messages left with Nevada's Creech Air Force Base were not immediately returned.
