Emergency callout at Wellington Airport

Emergency services were called out to Wellington International Airport after a plane was thought to have problems with its landing gear.

The Air New Zealand plane successfully landed at 1.29pm.

Several police cars and the fire service attended the emergency callout to Wellington Airport, after the pilot on the plane - with 60 people on board - reported difficulties with dropping one of the wheels.

However, the NZ5046 flight from Christchurch to Wellington landed without any issues and the aircraft was now being checked, an Air New Zealand spokesman said.
