PFD is at the Pueblo Memorial Airport for a plane reporting landing gear issues Saturday morning on April 8.

PFD said a Piper aircraft with a single pilot in the air reported having problems with landing gear and is currently circling the airport to burn fuel for a safe landing.

Another plane has taken flight to help assess damages.

Officials are unsure if the landing gear has a mechanical issue or a hydraulic leak. Crews are on standby for the landing, according to PFD.
