Springfield television station KYTV reports that American Airlines flight 3950 landed safely just after 8:30 a.m. Tuesday at the Springfield-Branson National Airport.

The flight carrying 47 people had departed from Columbia, Missouri, on its way to the Dallas-Forth Worth International Airport when it diverted.

Officials reported that the pilot of the 50-seat Embraer ERJ 145 requested the emergency landing because the plane's landing gear was stuck in the down position.
