HOUSTON—A plane landing at Bush Intercontinental Airport Saturday morning was not able to lower its front landing gear.

The Colgan passenger plane operating as a United Express flight approached IAH from Little Rock around 10:45 a.m, according to a United Airlines spokesperson. The nose gear did not extend, although the back end gear did lower and the plane was able to land safely.

The Houston Police Department arrived at the scene and 31 passengers were evacuated and bussed into the terminal.

No injuries were reported.
