A plane landed safely at Windsor International Airport after reporting "unstable landing gear" upon its approach.

The incident happened just before 10 a.m. Friday.

Fire departments from Windsor and the neighbouring town of Tecumseh responded and were on standby and roads surrounding the airport were closed in case something went wrong.

Passenger Tanya Todorovic was one of 28 people on board. She said the plane circled for 20 minutes before landing safely. She said she was never scared and that the pilot of the Porter Airlines flight kept passengers updated.

The plane was coming from Toronto.

The incident has acting airport CEO, who is Windsor Mayor Eddie Francis, considering buying a transit bus to have on site to move passengers in the case of emergencies. The cost could be a about $200,000.
