— No word yet on what caused trouble aboard a commuter plane out of Dulles International Airport in Washington.

It was heading for Raleigh-Durham International Airport Sunday night, but problems with the landing gear delayed the flight's touch down.

The complications put people here on the ground on alert, but after about 45 minutes, United Express commuter flight 6435 was able to land safely.

None of the 29 people aboard were hurt.
