A problem with the landing gear of a corporate jet that was bound for Mexico resulted in flight delays for thousands of people flying into and out of Philadelphia International Airport. Speaking for the airport, Diane Gerace said the jet was a Hawker 400 flying out of New Jersey. It made an emergency landing at about 7:30 p.m. on June 4, 2015. None of the five people on board were injured, but firefighters immediately sprayed the front of the aircraft with fire-resistant foam once it came to a stop. It is unknown at this time what caused the malfunction with the landing gear.
