    See if that works

    A Nike corporate jet is preparing to make an emergency landing at the Portland International Airport with landing gear problems, according to airport officials.

    Seven people are on board the jet, but their names have not been released, according to Steve Johnson with PDX. The jet is most commonly used by Nike's senior exectives.

    The plane took off from Hillsboro earlier Monday en route to Toronto, Canada, and was supposed to land in Portland at 9:15 a.m. The landing gear only went down half way and then got stuck, Johnson said.

    Authorities have closed Marine Drive, between 33rd and 122nd Avenues, as a precaution.

    The pilot was still circling the Portland airport to burn fuel as of 9:43 a.m. This is common practice in an emergency landing situation, to cut back on the risk of fire.

    The jet is a Gulf Stream G-5, according to Johnson.


    dunno why, I can see them and I'm not registered for crap.
