PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Airport officials say a small jet was forced to make an emergency landing in Philadelphia when the pilot realized the plane’s landing gear was malfunctioning.

The small Hawker 4000 made the hard landing at about 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Philadelphia International Airport. Officials say the plane skidded to a stop and landed with the nose gear still up. It’s unclear what caused the malfunction.

None of the plane’s five passengers were injured. It’s unclear where the plane was headed.

Crews doused the plane in fire-resistant foam when it touched down.

Departing flights were experiencing up to 60-minute delays after the plane landed.
