A small plane with mechanical issues circled Mineta San Jose International Airport on Friday morning for more than an hour to burn fuel before landing safely about noon, airport officials said.

The Piper Malibu, with four people on board, originated from the Idaho Falls Regional airport, airport spokeswoman Rosemary Barnes said.

All four people on board were able to walk away from the craft after it landed, Barnes said.

The plane reportedly had problems with its landing gear, Barnes said.

All airport operations were suspended while emergency crews responded following the emergency landing, Barnes said.
