RALEIGH, NC (WWAY) — A state plane with Gov. Bev Perdue on board made an emergency landing Friday afternoon at Raleigh Durham International Airport, according to WTVD-TV in Raleigh. No one was hurt in the incident.

WTVD reports according to radio traffic to the control tower, there was a problem with the aircraft’s landing gear.

Perdue’s press secretary Chris Mackey said Perdue was on her way to make a jobs announcement in Davie County when the plane experienced unusual vibrations as the landing gear was retracted after takeoff. A warning light also came on.
