Business jet makes emergency landing

A business jet landed safely without front wheels early Thursday morning at Iraklio Airport on the island of Crete, after what appeared to be a malfunction in the landing gear, the state-run Athens-Macedonian News Agency reported. 

The CL60 aircraft arriving from Oxford International Airport with four passengers and three crew members managed to land without further complications, but authorities kept the main runway where it stopped closed for about three hours.
