Emergency landing at YYJ

Victoria's airport says that an emergency landing of a small plane occurred without damage or injury.

Airport spokesman Terry Stewart says that a faulty indicator light in the Lear jet's cockpit suggested the landing gear of the craft wasn't working.

Stewart says the airport brought its crash and fire rescue teams to the runway as the plane landed.

He says it turned out that the landing gear was working despite the fact the indicator suggested it wasn't.

Stewart says the five people on board were unharmed.
