    The pilot of the plane says he is not sure if he wants to land at Parks Airport and is circling the area. The plane is circling to burn off fuel

    Learjet flying near St. Louis preparing for emergency landing due to landing gear problem, according to airport #breaking
    Reports are that it's a USAF Lear.

    A jet flew over several minutes ago as if to land, possibly to give ground chance to visually inspect landing gear, though possibly it was not the jet in question at all.

    And then there's....

    Anyone know who is on the plane? Is it a private company jet or owned by an individual?

    Looks like the plane is owned by Aerometro out of Houston, TX.

    Sounds like a charter plane maybe? Since the company has "Aero" it its name?

    KMOV reporting jet landed moments ago - looks good. "Appeared it was a normal, smooth landing."

    Would be interesting to know what the passengers talked about for the last 3 hours while waiting to see if they would survive the landing.
