Federal Aviation Administration records show aircraft from the company that made a jetliner involved in an emergency landing in New York City over the weekend have experienced at least three other landing gear problems in the past two years.
None of those problems resulted in injuries. The flights landed safely.
A spokesman for Canadian manufacturer Bombardier Inc. contends there's no issue with the safety of its aircraft. He notes the planes are used by airlines worldwide and have logged 22 million takeoffs and landings.
The cause of Saturday's emergency landing at John F. Kennedy International Airport is under investigation. The Delta Connection flight was operated by Atlantic Southeast Airlines and had 60 passengers from Atlanta. No one was hurt.
Several aviation experts say a plane landing without its full gear can be harrowing but usually few injuries or fatalities result.
