ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - A Ravn Air Piper Navajo is temporarily out of service following an emergency landing in Fairbanks after its right main landing gear was stuck in a retracted position.

According to a statement from Ravn, the flight was en route through Fairbanks to Galena, but they returned due to the landing gear problem.

"The aircraft suffered light damage to its right aileron & flap, which will take the aircraft out of service until repaired, inspected, approved, and test flown," they wrote.

The Fairbanks International Airport Fire and Police Chief reported no injuries to the six passengers, infant, or pilot on board, and no damage to the runway.

Ravn is in communication with the FAA and the NTSB to determine the cause of the gear malfunction.
